The ravines (las barrancas).
At the Cathedral...
These equidistant crosses were installed by don Sergio Méndez Arceo, a liberation theologist and bishop of Cuernavaca's cathedral in the mid- to late 20th century. The equilateral cross had been prevalent in Nahua culture and is representative of the four cardinal points.
"¡Estamos hasta la madre!" Remnants of the anti-violence demonstrations in el Zócalo.
Just a little glimpse at the abundance and commotion of Cuernavaca's biggest market. The smells were amazing.
And I thought Italy's meat markets were gruesome...
This little meat shop stands across the street from Anna's apartment. Thought it was appropriate, as I have begun to eat meat again for the first time in years. Fortunately, anything is delectable covered in mole sauce!
One of Anna's beloved plants.
