Since J. Jesus de la Riva arrived in Southern California for a visit nearly two weeks ago, the phone hasn't stopped ringing. The visiting schoolteacher from the Mexican state of Zacatecas has received a nonstop barrage of invitations to outings and to the homes of friends and relatives, all of them immigrants from his hometown of Luis Moya. "It's like I never left home," said De la Riva, 40, who is staying with a sister in Orange County. "It turns out I'm related to half of Santa Ana."

Although the reproduction on the wall depicts the French nobility, the figures really lurking in the photograph's background are right up front in a painting not seen here: Diego Velazquez's 1656 masterpiece "The Maids of Honor" ("Las Meninas"). His doll-like princess and the dwarf who is her playmate coalesce in the subject of Trujillo's picture. Yet when you ask Trujillo where he got the idea for his period portraits, he mentions the ones he sat for as a boy in Mexico.

I lived for several years in Zacatecas, Mexico, and so I thoroughly enjoyed Christopher Reynolds' article on Paracho, Michoacan, Mexico's guitar center ("Guitar Central," Special Travel Issue, Oct. 14). I happened upon the festival by accident in 1998. Reynolds helped me relive memories of a superb weekend of friendliness and revelry. The city of Morelia is a true colonial jewel. But Reynolds only mentioned the Hotel & Suites Villa San Jose. There are excellent hotels located in the city center, including Hotel Casino, Hotel Virrey de Mendoza and Hotel Posada de la Soledad.
