“Jewels of Mexico” is a real jewel

| 1 Comment

Among the many Spanish language shows I’ve been watching lately (see my last post), one of the best is “Las Joyas de México”, or The Jewels of Mexico.  It’s a half-hour documentary about various sites in Mexico, airing on HITN-TV at 7 PM Central on Sundays.  There are repeats at other times as well.

HITN is DirecTV channel 438, and is also available on DishNetwork on channels 843 & 9401.  According to the HITN-TV website, some cable systems in major US cities carry the network as well.

Las Joyas de México features well-produced stories about interesting sites in Mexico, and I find the Spanish to be easier than most shows.  Unfortunately, there’s no closed captioning available, but I think most students of Spanish will be able to follow enough of the dialogue to make it worth tuning in.

The series has its own website, at http://www.lasjoyasdemexico.com, although it doesn’t have much information about the actual shows.
