Mizraim Cárdenas • Buen viaje, Linocut, 2016
At the end of the year it is common with many Mexican families to wear yellow underwear for good luck. But also if you want to travel out of the city or of the country, you have to be prepared in the eve of the New Year with a suitcase by the main door of the house, exactly at 12:00 midnight. You must run out of the house with the suitcase, give the greatest number of laps so that you can travel a lot.
