Look at Artes de Mexico


Sorry, the website is Spanish only - http://www.artesdemexico.com/adm/09/index.php

BUT, it is full of incredibly detailed, scholastic research concerning the creation of the Mexican nation by the Jesuits and their rationalization concerning the necessity of integrating the indigenous population into the European desire for expansion and exploitation of Mexico's vast natural resources. (That's a polite way of saying that the Jesuits recognized and encouraged Mestizos - more people, more workers).

Dennis, Thank You


For your kind remarks.

The dogs are healthy (knock wood) and happy - every new day is really new and exciting and as soon as there is daylight they are letting me know about it.

Excuse me, but I think we need to clarify an ID. Are you the same Gypsy Jan who posted here for years? Your reply above lacked the familiarity which I had anticipated.

Gypsy Jan (note a space between the two names) last posted on 8-12-2014: http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=74914

Said she we be off Nomad for at least 6 months for medical reasons...

Right after you (Dennis) asked where the original Gypsy Jan is, the new GypsyJan responded (on 7-9-16):

"I Am the Original GypsyJan
As you can find me on the Member List, even though I am listed as a Newbie."

Thanks for the link. After reading some of the extensive reviews I downloaded the Kindle edition.

I've often wondered why Mexico is so different from the US in economic terms. This book sheds some light on the issue.

Yes I Am the Original Gypsy Jan


Thank you, DavidK (oops, David K - joke) for helping to clarify.

Our administrator, Doug, at this point, has been unable to restore my original sign-in, so I am using the no-space nom de -plume.

It's nice to know that some people paid attention and missed me since I missed you.

I am so happy to know you are okay and back on Nomad. That was the longest 6 months in history!

Mystery solved. Just didn't want you to be impersonated, Jan.

Yes - a bit long winded but the first chapter alone sums it up pretty well.
