Dear Silvia and Ben: I deeply appreciate your concern, my friends.
I'm fine just like my loved ones.
The earthquake was very strong and at night it was even more frightening.
There were no major damages in Mexico City, but in other states, unfortunately, there were several deaths and destruction.
I send you both a very strong hug!

I'm relieved to hear that you and your beloved are okay, dear Roberto!

It's sad that there are victims in other parts of the country, and we hear,
that flood waves are expected, so the danger is not over now...

Dear Roberto, good news for your safety. Earthquakes are dreadful and deadly, as are cyclones (fortunately they do not reach Mexico City.

Found the last one particularly impressing!

It's true, if we remove the cars, it could be an old photo.

The wall of the building where the mural is, adjoins the old house.

Great set, Roberto! I agree with Silvia about that lovely picture of the motorbike couple. And I also love that one called "Preparations for National Holidays."

Oh, Roberto, I just love that second photo (#2557.2) of the not-at-all-happy couple and the Bible promotion stand! There's a whole novel in that image. And after that, I love the one of the exhausted runners.

Dear friend, I particularly love your pics of the earnest couple, the one with
the Dior advertisement and the colourful clothes in detail!

This one is like a painting, a great piece of art...
