My hometown

Hello! Sorry for the absence, this week I traveled back to my home country, and I left with a little rush so I didn’t had time for leaving automatic posts. I'm still at my country, but I'm back in front of the screen.

Being back home is great! I missed my family, is great to be able to spend time with them. I will be here some more relaxing and eating great food.

Ok, several people have asked me, so I would like to say a little more about me. Thank you for your interest guys!

I was born in Mexico City, capital of Mexico, I lived there until I was 5 when we had to move to north Mexico. I lived there most my life until I finish university. Now I am a graduate student of electronic engineering at Tokyo University in Japan. I will live in Japan for a couple more years until I finish and then we will see what is next.

my garden

Beans at my first garden

My family taught me, since I was a kid, to respect and love nature, also they introduce me to gardening. Back when we lived in Mexico city we used to have a garden full of bean plants, they looked huge back then thought my kid eyes. Now here in north Mexico we have also have a big garden full of life.

The garden is a big shaggy since my parents don’t have as much time to take care of it, so I will probably will do some work there in the time I am here. I will let you know how it goes.

I have traveled all around Mexico, it is truly spectacular. The natural beauty and the landscapes mixed with the cultural diversity are amazing.
I highly recommend everybody to visit if they can. You won't be disappointed.

So far I have been very lucky, thanks to this blog, to connect with people all around the world. I think gardening and the love of nature helps people to bond and understand each other. I love my country, its diversity and it has a rich culture. I hope this blog, my garden, and my time in japan will help me even more to learn about different cultures and also to teach about my own.

Keep in touch!

Some fun facts about Mexico
  • Mexico city was the biggest city in the world until some years ago when Tokyo surpass it. /I guess I have a thing for big cities./

  • Mexico is one of the top 5 Megadiverse countries. With over 200,000 different species, Mexico is home of 10–12% of the world's biodiversity.

  • It ranks first in biodiversity in reptiles with 707 known species, second in mammals with 438 species, fourth in amphibians with 290 species, and fourth in flora, with 26,000 different species. Approximately 2,500 species are protected by Mexican legislations.

Oh also, just if you were wondering, my little garden in japan will be all right, it's being taken care of by very, very good hands.


  1. I hope you're enjoying your time back home with your family and glad to hear that your little garden in Japan is being well looked after. Yes, I think it does bring people from all over the world together when they have a common interest such as gardening. It's also very interesting to learn about different plants or methods of gardening in other countries.

  2. Lovely photos ~fer. Your early days were a bit like our fairy story of Jack and the beanstalk - did you climb up and visit the giant?

  3. It sounds like you're really enjoying being home. It's a good feeling, I think. I have only been to Mexico one time, and I hope to return. It was amazing, but the time there was too short. I'll look forward to hearing about your parents garden, too. Is there a favorite thing they grow that is only found in Mexico? A taste of home?

  4. I'm sure your family's thrilled to have you back for a visit. Enjoy your vacation :)

  5. Mexico! Wow!! All of the photos are inspiring to look at - love all that color - but the one thing that popped into my mind is if you will be bringing back some particular seeds with you when you return to Japan. I can only imagine the diversity in food crops found in your home country.

  6. Thank you guys!
    I ask my dad and he says the beans were about 3~4 meters tall, so i possibly did try some climbing haha
    I might try to sneak some seeds pass the border back to japan. I just need to decide what, possibly some chilli peppers so i can finally done some proper mexican cooking, is so hard to find some ingredients in japan.

  7. Thank you for sharing those beautiful photos of Mexico. Are your bulbs growing? Glad you are not around to pull them up to check.
