Missing Tenochtitlan

We arrived home yesterday and my head is still spinning from our trip to Mexico City. I have been at the easel most of the day scrambling to put inspiration to canvas.

So much so my fingers hurt so I am taking a wee break and posting just a few of the many photos we have taken . I will post more, in a more thematic sequence but for now…

P1000321With Chalchiuhtlicue @National Museum of Anthropology- a wonder of a place.

P1000275

@ Templo Mayor

P1000312

In Condesa where our B&B was, just  the loveliest neighborhood; chock-a-block with ArtDeco architecture, rivaling Miami Beach.

P1000430

Try to guess who’s house I was at.

P1000342

The spouse-man with one of the Voladores de Papantla performers; quite a spectacle.

P1000341

The Voladores de Papantla performance is  supposed to be descended from a ritual to the  fearsome god Xipe Totec.

P1000348

The primary reason for the trip, a pilgrimage To Where The Gods Were Born, Teotihuacan.

P1000363

Atop the Temple of the Moon, we had just finished the Temple of the Sun so our disheveled appearance can perhaps be forgiven.

It was glorious, at the summit of the Sun pyramid butterflies had amassed as if to welcome pilgrims; a good day indeed.

P1000400

Frankly just a vanity shot, usually I look  goofy as hell but this isn’t too bad.

At Coyoacán, possibly one of the most gracious tourist spots around.

I’m going to head back to my painting, but I will test patience by more updates once I have settled in.

Take care and be well,
