Walking Stories: Mexico
As a Fulbright Scholar, an online performance blog about extending trust to strangers in one of the world's largest cities.
Arty Girl: Laura Milkins Walks Across Mexico City (excerpt) LILIA MENCONI | APRIL 22, 2009 | 10:47AM
Milkins is using a Fulbright grant to "get to know Mexico on a humble, human scale, and share the enormous diversity of experience in Mexico."
She'll do so by walking and talking along Mexico City's Avenida de los Insurgentes, a north-south road that is supposedly the longest avenue in the world. "I will ask people to walk with me and tell me a story," she says. "I hope to hear a variety of stories of the ordinary/extraordinary lives of the people who live in Mexico City.
And maybe show another version of Mexico to my friends and family, to people I've never met who find my blog. I think this is a timely project about simple, intimate, human interactions in the world's 2nd largest city."
