LATIN AMERICA FOCUS is my personal webiste/blog focused on my experiences living and travelling in the region.  I live in Mexico City.

It is administered by me – Peter W Davies.  You can contact me at:


I am Australian and have a strong interest in all things Latin America.

I have travelled widely and lived in the region.

The site will concentrate on a broad range of issues originating in and/or relevant to Latin America as well as providing a space for me to share Latin American photography, travel stories, poetry, ideas and links.

So, if you’re looking for something related to Latin America you may  find it here.

Be it alpacas or the Amazon, border issues or Bolivia , Chavez or chilangos.  THE ABC of Latin America + lots more.




  1. I spent roughly ten years traveling to Honduras, staying one to two weeks at a time working at an orphanage. I stopped when I realized that I wasn’t doing much to effect any change. Most of the young girls my wife and I tried to help walked out the gate at 18 and were pregnant within six months, continuing a cycle of poverty that it seems to be impossible to stop.

    I look forward to your writing about the region. I found it strangely beautiful, despite the poverty and the casual acceptance of hopelessness.
