The thrill of being here: a letter from Fortin de las Flores, Mexico
The Southern Review (2006)
  • John D Hazlett, University of New Orleans
Abstract
"The Thrill of Being Here" is an epistolary meditative essay on the desire for, and difficulties of, penetration, considered as a goal of travel, intercultural communication, and understanding of the other. Writing from a small town situated in the uplands of Veracruz, Mexico, Hazlett considers the possibility that a series of acupuncture sessions might serve as a fine metaphor for his year living and working abroad.
