autumn appetite

食欲の秋

1975 Mexico
Mexican exports

After red wine, my appetite goes to beef – but I think my consumption of beef in recent years has been reduced.  This is because of my age, amount of exercises goes down and a little concern to the environmental issue, I guess.

In 1975, beef was one of the main export from Mexico and this is one of my favourite example of definitive stamps in the same format.

食欲の秋です。秋になると赤ワインと一緒にビーフを食べたくなる、、、けれど、加齢と運動不足ゆえか、肉の消費量が近年ぐっと減りました。豆類を多く食べるようになったことと、牛の飼育がどれくらい環境に負荷が多いかを知った、その衝撃も理由のひとつです。

この切手が出た1975年、牛肉はメキシコの主要な輸出物のひとつだったのですね。この「輸出品」シリーズは、シンプルで力強いデザインで大好きなシリーズです。
