Oh Mexico ~ Lucy Neville


Non Fiction
Full of the flavour of Mexico ... just can’t look at that cover the same way!

This was a fun read!!! After completing Uni, Lucy spent time living and working in Mexico City. This captures the chaotic lifestyle of Mexico as she regales the reader with stories about finding a job, finding a flat, finding a boyfriend. The book is subtitles “Love and Adventure in Mexico City” and there is lots of both.

Lucy is the daughter of Richard Neville and writes with loving, but derogatory terms about her parents and their parenting.

The cover is gorgeous ... till you reach the section where she tours the churches and gets the background to the Virgin of Guadeloupe.

Ahhhhhh! Mexico!!!!!
