Back from Mexico, part 1

I just got back from Hidalgo, México where I visited with my in-laws for two weeks.  We did a bunch of touristy stuff like visiting Teotihuacan, Real del Monte, and a former hacienda in Santa Maria Regla and we visited and were visited by every living relative in Remi's family.  I have a mountain of mail and laundry to deal with, dogs to walk, and work tomorrow so this just a little glimpse at the trip.
At Teotihuacan at the top of the Pyramid of the Sun with the Pyramid of the Moon behind.   

Adding a rock

Feeling the power of the pyramid at the center of the top

We stayed until the end of the day
We ate and ate with the family.  Some nieces and a nephew, and in-laws.

Father-in-law Roberto and Remi inspecting the stone work.  Roberto is a mason.
looking down on those barrel vaults with basalt prisms in the hills behind
looking up in Pahuatlan, Puebla
...and looking down
 And now Blogger and I are having some communication problems so I will rename this Back from Mexico, Part I.


  1. I did my study abroad in Guanajuato 5 years ago and loved every minute of it. We also went to San Miguel de Allende and Dolores Hidalgo to see the museum that was built to honor Padre Hidalgo. I can't wait to see Part 2!

  2. OMG, what lovely, lovely photos. The only foray I made into Mexico was the border town right over from Brownsville, TX for a meeting with a manufacturer for my then IT company. Not the Mexico you show here. I'd love to travel with you!

    Thanks so much for your suggestions in your last comment on my blog -- showing technique is something I'll work more on this year!

  3. Yes, more pictures please. It looks wonderful!
