Entering Veracruz -- the stun of those first sights -- a wall of heat and drizzle; the heavy scents of coffee and vanilla. And as I stepped from sea to land, at the same point where Cortes arrived centuries before me, there was the illusion of stepping from something fluid to something more solid. The earthiness of colour and heat and scent. Beguiled, as the Spanish had been. The Spanish set off from here, and it was here they were defeated.

-In the Casa Azul, by Meaghan Delahunt
