Mexico Monday redux, Week 1

Near the Mercado Libertad, Guadalajara

Even though I know there exists one more carousel full of family slides (from the 1980s) to share with you, due to current events I haven’t gotten round to visit my Mom and pick them up. I’ve known this for quite awhile — but it only occurred to me the other day that I do have on my hands a few boxes of Mexico slides sitting here waiting to be re-scanned. My slides this week date from the summer of 1970, although it’s tough for me to organize most of the collection since the majority are unlabeled. Still, I’m excited to see how much better they look compared to the first time around with my previous scanner. To see what I’m talking about, check out Mexico Monday, Week 20, from January 2018.
