Televisa have started showing some 3 minute clips, celebrating the beauty, both natural and cultural, of Mexico in the run up to the big Bicentenario celebrations in September. The video I’ve posted below is from the state of Sinaloa and features the Chepe railway – I took a ride on this awesome train from Los Mochis to Creel in 2003. To say I highly recommend you, whoever you are, do the same is a huge understatement.
The video features some very Mexican looking men and some very attractive, but not necessarily Mexican looking ladies. I’m sure there was logic in their casting choices and I for one am not arguing with them. At least they don’t look non Mexican I guess. The official webpage is here and their YouTube page is here. So far they’ve gotten seven states to agree to producing these three minute videos, the one below is for Sinaloa, but hopefully the other couple of dozen or so will join in the fun. And really, these videos shouldn’t be confined to Mexico – they are fantastic tools to help bring in a little tourism.
