from Aguascalientes, we went to San Jose de Gracia to ride a little bit by the beach of the dam. Have some pics and a soda for everyone.

This Dam was the first one ever built in all México.















changing to regular shoes is always a priority even for a little while !



lets get some lemonade




we did have a very young entertainer



a sight of the "Broken Christ"



since to go near of this statue, we needed to get on a boat, and it was gettin late, I could not manage to take some close pics, so I will post a couple taken from other source I had, just for highlight this touristic area.


This Christ statue is the second largest of all America, after the one at Rio de Janeiro.

It was done as is "broken" inspired on a old tale of a priest who found a small broken christ and bought it and never restored it, and used to his activities of helping the ones sick and amputees, realizing that the broken figure did use to provide some special reliefe to those in need of it.
