Tuxtla Gutierrez, Mexico

Transport Hub in south-eastern Mexico

Hello welcome to my living room. Come on in.

This is our favorite place, our most comfortable couch.

Maria, 3 Years Old

We fight about who gets to sit here.

Rodrigo, 5 Years Old

My mother painted this picture when I was around 10 or 12 years old. It hung in my room. And now I’ve brought it to my house. Almost all the paintings were done by my mother-in-law or my mother; they’re both very talented.

Would you like to tell them about this picture? Go ahead.

Rodrigo, Son: “I made it.”

My son inherited his artistic skills from his grandmothers.

Grandmother is a painter. Grandfather is a pilot.

My mother also painted this box for me, so I’d have a place to keep all my valuable possessions. Now it’s here at our house too, and I keep both my and my kids things in it.

She made it for me when I was very young; that’s why it’s decorated with things I liked then, things like baseballs, teddy bears, stuff like that.

Thanks for stopping by. This is our home, and I hope you come back to Chiapas soon.
