about Genteel Decline

This blog is a way of organizing my thoughts and experiences on anthropology, Oaxaca, Mexico, immigrant and immigrant rights, rants about stuff in general, off-the-beaten track travel in Mexico and elsewhere, and finally, deaccessioning decades of stuff.

Martha at work

This blog is intended for folks interested in any or all of the above topics. I’m writing to folks interested in life a bit off the beaten track–no chain hotels, here, my friend.


I will post (or link to) articles I’ve written, specific information about these topics, including travel hints and experiences, as well as specific items from my collections.

I will write new posts as new things, ideas or experiences come up.
