Most of you know who have been following me for a while now might know from my ramblings that I have a Mexican heritage. My mother was from Mexico, but she’s been here since she was a child and married my father born in this country as well as my siblings and me. We have a bit of a laugh each time we think about it as each of us were born in different parts of the country. From the far west coast in the state of Washington to the southern part of Texas and the eastern coast of the Carolinas and that’s just three of us! I think the only place they left untouched was the north eastern part.
I wholeheartedly embrace both cultures and read and speak both languages and write only minimal Spanish. The part that often takes people by surprise and only makes my family poke fun at me is that I don’t eat a lot of Mexican food. I am not talking about the more commercialized foods like tacos and enchiladas — it’s more like ‘fideo con pollo‘ or ‘frijoles a la charra‘ that while I can eat it my taste buds would prefer not to. It’s like anything else some things you like others you don’t.
So when I saw this Pueblo Viejo gacha set by unKindness for the Epiphany I was really looking forward to putting together a scene as it felt like there was an affinity to it. It made me remember some of my trips into Mexico through the border towns of Tijuana from trips to San Diego and Reynosa from a trip to Texas. While those places didn’t look so much like this it had remnants of this.
I hope you enjoy my little set and all the pieces have varying land impact from 1 to 34 for the rare church.
