This past weekend I went to Casa de Elizabeth along with my sister Laura to say hi to some of the children. I visited them for three days before leaving for Sudan in December of 2009 and after only a year the kids seem to have grown so much. Some of them I've been seeing [...]
Could you get any cuter than this . . . ? I don't think so, it's the daughter of a young pilgrim from the South of Mexico at the Basilica de la Virgen de Guadalupe, so adorable.
So fellow News21 reporter Evan Wyloge and I headed out to interview some new U.S. citizens and swing by the truly American tradition of protest in the form of a tea party at the Arizona State Capitol. Here are some audio and photographs from today: It's those little things that really tell you about people. [...]
Pilgrims from Chalma, a town near Mexico City, march back with their Virgin de Guadalupe to place her back in their town's church. So a while back I started a project on the Virgen de Guadalupe . . . she is an apparition of the Virgin Mary that appeared on Tepeyac Hill in Mexico City [...]

Went out shooting with photographer Brian Frank today, he is based in Mexico City and a pretty amazing photographer. I shot some, but his stuff, which will be featured in the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday I believe is just awesome. Frank shooting below: Some of the pics I shot today, we went from La [...]

And just [...]
