Road to the pyramid

The V marks the very spot.

Following an occasional Hacienda tradition, we took a drive Sunday afternoon. We headed for the pyramid. On a distant day in 2002, I got down on my knee, just like in the movies, and proposed to the fine, young Mexican babe standing in front of me on that auspicious afternoon. She said yes.

The pyramid was built before the time of Columbus or rather, in our case, Hernán Cortés. Columbus never set foot in Mexico as far as we know.

It’s a nice ride through lovely land, and we skirted the town of Ihuatzio.

An inelegant gate to someone’s humble home.
That appears to be a pine or maybe a Christmas tree.

It was a good end to the afternoon during which we earlier dined in one of our favorite mountaintop restaurants, a spot named El Rincón de Arrachera. I had sensational breaded shrimp and my child bride dived into chicken enchiladas topped with mole.

We missed you.

    1. Señor Cotton: It is an interesting spot. However, I had to take the photo from out on the road because the gate was locked. On a Sunday! The Kung Flu, I imagine, as if it would be risky to walk out there in what is basically an open field. Nuts.

    1. Kirk: If you come in your own car, you are right. If you come in a bus, the Kung Flu might be a reason not to come. I’m avoiding buses and planes till this all blows over, which it will.
