Perfect Woman update

A little more than a year ago, I wrote about the Perfect Woman Project. Now, Laura Milkins, the brains (and beauty) behind that performance-art piece, is off on a new journey that mixes self-discovery with eye-opening insights for the person exposed to the project. Milkins is using a Fulbright grant to "get to know Mexico on a humble, human scale, and share the enormous diversity of experience in Mexico."

She'll do so by walking and talking along Mexico City's Avenida de los Insurgentes, a north-south road that is supposedly the longest avenue in the world. "I will ask people to walk with me and tell me a story," she says. "I hope to hear a variety of stories of the ordinary/extraordinary lives of the people who live in Mexico City. And maybe show another version of Mexico to my friends and family, to people I've never met who find my blog. I think this is a timely project about simple, intimate, human interactions in the world's 2nd largest city."

Blog's not up yet; I'll post here when Milkins starts relating her Mexico City stories.
