This doesn't pretend to be a social document on Mexico, but it has a lively feel of the country and the people as they appear in daily life. Superficial, perhaps, but attention to little things throws some light on larger aspects. In any case it is a thoroughly likable, human record of a year and more's stay in Mexico. The author, in order to go to summer school in Mexico City, takes her three children with her, secures a tutor for them while she is in the capital, later they set up housekeeping in Cuernavaca, where they all learn adaptation to Mexican life and social customs, through their servants and the friends they make. Those who liked Mexico will find it delightful.
