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…
@ Templo Mayor
In Condesa where our B&B was, just the loveliest neighborhood; chock-a-block with ArtDeco architecture, rivaling Miami Beach.
Try to guess who’s house I was at.
The spouse-man with one of the Voladores de Papantla performers; quite a spectacle.
The Voladores de Papantla performance is supposed to be descended from a ritual to the fearsome god Xipe Totec.
The primary reason for the trip, a pilgrimage To Where The Gods Were Born, Teotihuacan.
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.
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,
