Not much to say here other than I rode out to the Zapotec ruins and spent the day walking around this impressive archaeological site. I repeated the exercise from Pelenque and donned my Ipod and put Neil Young's "Cortez the Killer" on repeat play, as I pondered the nature of empires such as these Meso-American Indian kingdoms, and the Spanish Empire that conquered them, and how or if that relates to how we Americans, as a nation, conduct our own business in the world at large. On to the pics:

I.m leaving for points north tomorrow. Either Pueblo or Cuernavaca.
