Mexico is all about its colors

After spending a couple of months in Mexico the things that stand out to me are the people, the food and the colors. The Mexican people are so friendly, and so colorful and more than just a paper thin semblance of a person. That’s reflected in the vibrant colors of their buildings, their clothing and even in nature. From the bright red house surrounded by luscious green jungle, to the brilliant azure of the Caribbean coast.  I don’t really have the words to describe it(my wife is the writer), so hopefully some of these pictures will give you an idea.
