In Mexico (and many other Latin American countries) Nichos are highly decorated boxes that artistically focus on religious or folk art motifs. Saints, artists, politicians and the dead….no one is too good NOT to be portrayed in a Nicho. The english translation of Nicho being Niche, the mood of a Nicho is more often than not humorous and light-hearted.

I’d like to think of this blog as a Nicho. A look at all things Mexican without the heavy and dark political discourse. What I love about this country is the fact that very few people here take anything too seriously. I will endeavor to keep this spirit alive.
