Who am I?
In case you were wondering...
Welcome to a Sunday edition of The Mexpatriate.
I’ve been working on a juicy post for you, but it’s taking me longer than planned to research it. I’ll take you on a tour of recently published statistical data on crime, poverty and the economy in Mexico and why it’s been making headlines. Light reading, I assure you.
Today I decided to bring you two essays from the archive that help illuminate both my background and my thought process as a writer. I hope it serves as a helpful introduction for new subscribers, and I encourage all of you to add your comments and start up a conversation.
Expat vs immigrant
The second topic in this La Semana post from last year is a personal exploration of leaving one’s home country, how words influence our identities, and how I feel I will forever live in a space between.
A skeptic’s manifesto
This is a short essay about my worldview, and an attempt to answer that fundamental question in the age of mis-, dis- and dumb information: why read yet another opinion at all?
