Two neighborhoods on high

THE FIRST VIDEO shows pre-Hispanic, indigenous ruins that remain near where I now live. It’s about a 20-minute drive away.

The second is the nearby state capital. The park where the video takes off is about a five-minute walk from where I lived my first eight months in Mexico, from January to September of 2000.

I often sat alone on a bench in that small park with an ice cream cone and wondered what the devil I had done to myself.

But it all ended well.

          1. Felipe: If you have a leg, I will pull it.

            I have been to both places, and wonder why there wasn’t a well developed society north of the New Mexico/Arizona area. The (excuse my political correctness) indigenous people in the areas north of there were mostly nomadic.


  1. We were there early this year with family and really enjoyed the ruins, Morelia and Pátzcuaro very much! I think my husband was the only Americano there!
