…there is a video circulating the internet about San Miguel…the #1 City in Latin America…I believe Travel and Leisure Magazine may be behind it….the video depicts two very white youthful Americans enjoying all the moneyed destinations in San Miguel. I find all my buttons being pushed. The disparity here is not addressed…..how many Mexicans play polo? Where are the brown faces in this video? Where are the streets where there is no sewage?…where are the beggar ladies who are bussed in every day? In my short time in San Miguel (15 years), I have been very fortunate and blessed to know and engage daily with everyday people…such a gift. At the same time the video for tourists does not promote this simple pleasure of immersion…I am quite perplexed…'cuz I am still the white guy amongst these beautiful folks…I am gifted by the tourism here like many others…but forgive me if I do not buy into the fantasy world of the Discreet Charms of the Bourgeoisie…..the video that I mentioned above depicts a fantasy life that I find to be a beguiling charade……just give me some truth in light of all the upheaval the world is embroiled in…….
