“La carcacha”

Here are a few pictures in honor of Francisco Alcántara, Polo a Polo’s official mechanic and his wife, Myrna. We thank them from the deepest of our heart for their time, their patience and the attention they gave us while we were in Saltillo. The advice and technical help that Pancho keeps giving us over the phone and the internet just make our trip so much easier. See you when we get back in the land of ponchos!

Without Corn, No Country

Aquí van algunas capturas del último video de Polo a Polo sobre la cruzada por la liberación de cultivos transgénicos en el campo mexicano.

Tajin, Veracruz

See here a few pictures of our visit of Tajín ruins, where we learned a bit more about the Totonac culture and the “flying men,” a ritual that exists since the beginning of times. The relics of the metropolis, mysteriously abandonned a few centuries ago and never discovered by the Spanish conquistadors, still show the scientific and social heritage of the pre-Columbian people.
