Recently I've received two comments, out of the blue, and I've been pleasantly surprised to discover that I have an audience (well, 2 people at least) I hadn't expected when I started my blog.
The first comment was from a "a 17 year old kid from Mexico who has lived in the United States since [he/she] was 3." He/she said:
"I'm a 17 year old kid from Mexico who has lived in the United states since I was 3. As I'm getting closer to graduating high school (I'll be a junior come September) i have actually been thinking about going back to Mexico to further my education In UNAM. I came across your blog not long ago by accident and I right away got hooked by it ( I have read all your posts about mexico within a week). what advice might you have about attending UNAM and living in a completely different country (I'm Mexican but have only been there twice after i left so Mexico for me in many ways is still new especially Mexico city). thank you"
Later I received a comment from someone originally from Maltrata, Veracruz (where I go for my thesis research and an awesome family has adopted me as one of their own). He/she commented on one of the posts about traditions in Maltrata:
"very interesting I am from maltrata but I havent really lived there spent a lot time outside of Veracruz this is helping learn more things about my hometown"
To both of you, whoever you are, thank you for reading and for commenting. I always love hearing feedback, but I am especially glad that my blog has been of interest to you. I never imagined my posts would be able to help people from Mexico learn about their town or country.
And to all readers out there, thank you for reading!
