Mexico Monday Redux, Week 21

Axochiapan and Mexico City — In last week’s post I mentioned the small town of Axochiapan, and as promised I have some images my dad shot there when we visited in 1970. Axochiapan is about 2.5 hours south of Mexico City on today’s roads; but I’m not sure how long the trip actually took us in our VW camper, nicknamed “Tortuga de Dios” (God’s tortoise) because it made slow but — usually — steady progress around Mexico.

Back in Mexico City, we enjoyed a visit to the local mercado.
