I’m a great admirer of the classical literature because I liked reading ever since I was little. My favorite book was “Don Quixote of La Mancha” by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. I give infinite thanks to the Virgin of Carmel for I could travel to Spain and do the windmill route in La Mancha and saw “the giants” of Don Quixote.

I love Mexican culture, especially their regional dances. I always had a dream to travel to Mexico to see them. I thank Saint Charbel becasue I visited the state of Chiapas and saw the traditional Parachicos dance that blew me away with its colors and beauty.

When we were coming back from our honeymoon at the beaches of Puerto Escondido in Oaxaca… and we could lost our lives by negligence. My wife implored the Virgin of Juquila for protection, and now we thank for her miracle.

I give thanks to Saint Dolly, for leading me towards my perfect truck, which I have graced with your name and image. I enjoy many epic roadtrips and adventures with uberbabes and trucksluts in the Big Dolly truck.

I thank the Holy Heart for such a great good deed. I was on a trip to the Skull island in the Pacific looking for new species. There we caught an incredible huge ape called King Kong. We took him to New York to show to the people but he escaped leaving deaths and destruction. He grabbed me, without hurting me, and took me with him to the top of the highest skyscraper in the city. He was shot down, and my life was saved.

My husband and I were going through a marriage crisis. We even went through family therapy but it didn’t work. I didn’t want to divorce him but I didn’t know what to do. I’m infinitely grateful to Saint Anthony of Padua because I got an idea to invite my husband to the Zipolite nudist beach for a week-end. It revived the flame of our love, and now we love each other as much as when we were newlyweds.

When Michaela and Jorge went on board of a cruise ship, Michaela got so sick she spent four days in bed. Fortunately, Saint Christopher was so kind to cure her again, and on the fifth day she was able to walk around the beautiful city of Porto. However, she was still weak so she made many stops at the nice small town cafes. At the end it was much better than sit in a bus doing a tourist trip.

I’ve always been a dreamer tucan, and my parents used to tell me that I need to get my head out of the clouds until one day I asked the Holy Virgin of Guadalupe to give me an opportunity for an adventure, and it happened. I’m about to embark to go to Alaska and to live as I always wanted—free. I thank and dedicate this picture.

I admire the paintings of the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. I thank Saint Rita with this exvoto because when I travelled to Mexico I visited the Modern Art museum to contemplate one of my favorite works—her self-portrait called “The Two Fridas”.

I’m an American and I’m fascinated by the pre-hispanic cultures of Mexico. Every year I traveled to Mexico on my vacation and I’ve visited Monte Alban, Teotihuacan, Tula, Bonampak. But this year I’ve had to cancel everything because of the coronavirus pandemic. I beg Saint Christopher, patron saint of the travelers, to find a cure from COVID-19 sooner so I could visit the great Chichen Itza in Yucatan.

Virgin of Guadalupe, I entrust my boyfriend Cayetano Macias to you, look after him because he’s gone in a six-month trip.
