I decided I wanted to go to Mercado 28 one morning so we all piled onto the bus and headed downtown. These photos were taken at a little place we stopped in for lunch when I saw the giant sign that said “carnitas.” On a day like that one, sitting in the stifling, airless heat, the custom of having a siesta every day is entirely understandable. We were all like heavy-lidded lizards, barely able to move.
I was really racked my brain for a G, and I think this one works.
This doesn’t look like much, but it’s all that’s left of the temple of Ixchel, a Maya goddess. The temple is at Punta Sur, on Isla Mujeres, which means “island of women.” Punta Sur is the furthest east point in Mexico, so the sun hits here first every day.
