Here are the final photos of magnificent Mexico City… Tomorrow I’ll tell you all about pretty, pretty Puebla.
Our group felt extremely lucky… After more than a year of reno work, the Bellas Artes Theater had its first presentation of Amalia Hernandez’ ” Balet Folklorico” and we were on hand to see it. The enthusiasm of the dancers was incredible…
What visit to Mexico City is complete without a day at Chapultepec? This is the park’s logo… that’s right it’s a grasshopper…
This gigantic “Tlaloc” the Aztec rain god stands guard over the entrance to the park’s Museum of Anthropology. In 1964, it took four semis to carry monolyth into the city from the small village where it had been unearthed. And although it was in the middle of the dry season, a downour accompanied the move… It is assumed that the rain god was not amused at being relocated!
Jorge says hello to an old friend… this Chac Mool is from Chichen Itza
Ah if it were only true!
Yes, we did see the mariachis in Guadalajara but who could resist a trip to Garibaldi and this fine fellow?
Although it was pretty late for these two, they sure were enthusiastic dancers!
All of us enjoyed the mariachis but…
Jorge and Sergio enjoyed them most!
