This chapter explores the prisms of belonging that emerge in the relationship between urban and rural space in Mexico. It presents people's narratives about the home, the neighborhood, the city and places of origin and also describe ways in which these places and sites of affectivity are revisited. It suggests that spaces are associated with particular ways of being and moral beliefs, which shift in relation to the contexts in which they are perceived.
