RESTAURANTE “LA VILLA”:      

We stayed in a pension in the same neighborhood as this restaurant. The boy in the center was cleaning up one morning while his two pals kept him company. Everything in the room was as you see it except them. I asked them to climb back through the chairs and stand in front of the “Superior” mirror.


ADELBERTO PAC: DESCENDIENTE DE REBOLLOSOS MAYAS

(DESCENDANT OF MAYAN REBELS):     

Mr. Pac was born in the town of Felipe Carillo Puerto, formerly Chan Santa Cruz, the last stronghold of the Mayan insurgency against the Spaniards known as the Caste War of the Yucatan (1847-1901). He was working in a small hotel on the Mexican border with Belize when I met and befriended him. He told me stories of his family’s part in the rebellion with great pride. He stood for this photograph as a personal favor.


HOMBRE DE DEPOSITOS:             

(DEPOSITS MAN)

While walking the streets of Tehuacan we passed this building with a mountain of empty soda/water bottles in front. Most of the soda pop and bottled water consumed in the country at that time came in re-usable bottles that carried a bounty of a few centavos each. And, in Tehuacan, this guy was the deposits man.


TEODORA GOMEZ DE ALVAYA-            

RECUERDO DE TU FAMILIA:   

In Mexico people believe that your ancestors are always with you. Cemeteries are gathering places for families bringing picnics and gifts for the departed, especially on El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) on October 31. This cemetery is located near the village of San Miguel Xicalco in the mountains above Mexico City.
