Feliz 2019

Happy New Year Feliz 2019 ana Nuevo

A few hours left until midnight here in Oaxaca, but almost new year back in the UK. Feliz ano nuevo!! Feliz 2019!!

Benito Juarez is one of Oaxaca and Mexico’s most revered statesmen. One of his legacies is this mantra….

Entre los individuos , como entre las naciones, el respeto al derecho ajeno es la paz.

“Between individuals, as between nations, respect for the rights of others, means peace”.

If only our world leaders lived by this mantra today, then the world would be a better place. To those who seek to oppress and to wage war, and to those who seek to eliminate our differences by telling us we are all the same, you are equally guilty of failing that mantra.

We suppose a year of peace is too much to realistically hope for, so let’s hope 2019 is a year of progress. Happy new year to everyone!
