I had the honor to meet Akira Yamaoka in Campus Party 2010 in Santa Fé, México City. In fact, my surprise didn't end when he tried the game that we're developing "Mariachi Giro". We installed an iphone version within an iPad and we showed the version we had for the presentation in Campus party. He even played with an iPod Touch with the game loaded!!!
Yesterday I was browsing the net (flickr mostly) to find another place for the game... so many beautiful places in Mexico, but I wanted to use something very romantic related with the music, the colony architecture and a state which I love very much because I lived in there... Querétaro (so cooooool!!!!) .  I remember walking in the midnight after a movie with so much calm and ease in the air.... you could see a Mercedes in the street without any protection (but the alarm, of course).... very funny 'cause almost all my life I've been living in Mexico City and is a very chaotic place, even in a quiet neighborhood you have to be careful...

One time I was in a grocery store ("una tiendita") trying to buy some smokes or something and nobody was attending.... in here we are use to knock with a coin or something to call the attendant... after a few minutes I made some noise because it seemed nobody was there.... after a while the attendant appeared very upset claiming: "What's the rush?".... Yes, exactly, that expression summarizes the way of living in Querétaro (at least for me)....There's no rush.... and after you become used to that way of thinking you have plenty of time to do whatever you want....

That's the reason for which I love that city and I've tried (not hard enough it seems) to go back and settle there....
