This is a link to a captivating post on a museum in the midst of what is now desert between Chihuahua City and Cuahtémoc in northwestern México. Linda, Eric and families in New Mexico, you really, really ought to go see it. It is MUCH closer to you than to us. I was surprised to read that the Mennonite farmers in the area (who are leaving now in sizeable numbers) are not organic or near-organic farmers and that they do not work to conserve water. As my brother-in-law Ivan says, when water-table water is gone, it's pretty much gone.
But, but...this is NOT a gloomy article: it is joyful. Enjoy it, the pictures, and Elizabeth and Eliseo, and celebrate two original and resilient human beings.
