Photos today

Hi, all

Here's a street near our house.  All the houses are painted lovely colors, mostly earth tones, so this blue one is unusual.

We passed a church, went in and found this statue.  I read in my history of Mexico book that one reason the Spanish conquest of Mexico was relatively easy was that both cultures were pretty bloody, so it was an easy assimilation.

By contrast, here's their notion of the Virgin Mary:  pure and beatific.

I've mentioned the Jardin a lot.  The trees are sculpted in a way I haven't seen anywhere else.

And here's a picture of Rick, at the bottom of the stairs to the central gazebo on which I was standing.

There's always something happening at the Jardin.  I've written about the Indian dancers.  One day there was a stage erected in the plaza between the Jardin and the Parroquia, the big church I don't have a picture of but here's a link:   When we were there yesterday, we saw the beginning of a double wedding.
