Just six weeks since we left and we already miss the place. Thanks for your regular reminders of what we can look forward to next March.

A propósito, maestro, ¿que significa "Tlacolol"?

It's a term of Aztec origin referring to a parcel of hillside land farmed by using slash-and-burn agricultural technique typically for growing corn and beans as well as other common local crops. The Danza de los Tlacololeros is a celebration of this ancient practice that involves a somewhat complicated ritual.
