Tiempo de Vals

The 'quinceañera celebration' in which fifteen-year-old girls 'come out' for the first time is a lived illusion. It is a day-dream shared not just by the whole community living in Tetlanohcan, a rapidly urbanising agricultural town in Tlaxcala, Central Mexico, but even by those members of the community living as migrants in the USA.
