The MEXICO Report
By Susie Albin-Najera

Said the travel writer to her camera, “Do you see what I see?”  

Who knew doors could be so captivating and filled with so much character?

The MEXICO Report was recently invited by the Mexico Tourism Board to attend Mundo Maya Tourism Fair in Mérida, the capital of the state of Yucatán.

On this trip, I found myself smitten by the surroundings and drawn to the various and vibrant door entries.

Here is a quick, colorful slideshow of ‘Las Puertas’ (the doors), so you can see too… Click once on the photo below to enjoy the show!

    I see we share a love of doors and windows! They make great subjects and I always find myself stopping to dig out my camera to take a photo. My husband doesn’t see the beauty and will sigh and say; “Ayyy….otra puerta!?!”
    Beautiful photos Susie! Thanks for sharing!
