Isla de Janitzio is the main island of Lake Pátzcuaro in the state of Michoacán, Mexico. The town of Janitzio, which means "where it rains", is located atop the hill. Janitzio can only be reached by boats which run regularly back and forth from about 7:30 am to 6 pm, accessible from Pátzcuaro's pier. This shot was taken from one such ferry boat on my way to the island.

The #badboys of the #stockmarkets are back in the #game and waay #good to #go . .—• The pause in rate hikes saw some #risk appetite #return to EMs, contributing to the rally in the first quarter. While #Fed expectations for #US#GDP#growth for the year have weakened, EMs are still expected to achieve faster #economic growth than developed markets (DMs) in 2019 and for the foreseeable future. The #International Monetary Fund (IMF) forecasts EMs to #grow 4.5% in 2019, more than double the 2.0% estimate for DMs.2 We remain optimistic for the prospects of EMs, particularly at current valuations. .—• #Asian equities led regional #performance across EMs. Gains in Asia were broad-based, with #China , Taiwan and Pakistan recording the strongest returns. Hopes for a US-China trade deal provided a major boost for #equities in China and export-oriented markets such as Taiwan. .—• Colombia and Peru led performances in #LatinAmerica , with both markets ending the quarter with double-digit gains. Despite recording #positive returns, Brazil and Mexico, lagged their EM and regional peers. #Healthy#macroeconomic data, including #strong 2018 GDP growth data and improving #trade numbers, supported #investor#confidence in Peru. Slow progress on social security reform and disappointing 2018 GDP growth data held back the Brazilian market. International ratings agency Standard & Poor’s lowered Mexico’s sovereign outlook to negative from stable on concerns about growth and the government’s energy policy. .—• Russia and Greece, however, bucked the trend with strong returns. .• Franklin Templeton
