  • This structure was intended to be a church, but instead it became a family burial site. It is approximately 100 years old.

  • A church from Teplazingo ( a nearby pueblo).
  • Virgen Mary.
  • The Christmas decorations still adorne the church because the fiestas continue. People always have a reason to celebrate something.
  • This church is in Acatlan. This is where my dad’s funeral took place.
  • A hotel next door to my aunt’s house.
  • Patricia buying chapulines (grasshoppers). Yuk!
  • Acatlan has grown a lot. It’s a combination of the old and the new. You will find plaza’s (or mercados) as well as bodegas (warehouses such as this one). Guess who’s in town? That’s right—WALMART. In a few years, I’m sure that the mercado’swill disappear. Sniff, sniff.
  • This is a church called “El Calvario.” The English translation is Calvary. See the red arrow? It’s pointing at a clock. My mom raised the money (by selling tamales) to purchase and install this clock. Rumor has it that other people are claiming that they paid for the clock since there isn’t a plaque recognizing my mom’s hard work and contribution .
