Hernan Cortes scuttled most of the ships but dismantled at least one and built a sailors quarters quarters that also doubled as a site for mass, making it an impromptu church. The site was easy to acess up until about 15 years ago and then people in La Villa Rica began isolating the area with fences and walls.
I took JD and Donnie to the town and the beach when they came through.
You can also ride portions of a couple of the "camino real" routes. Yes, you will pause and wonder how they did what they did!

If you've been to the pyramid in the picture, you are either over the age of 50 or have a few skeletons in your closet.

One of the local tianguis vendors tells me that Cortez and his men were all jazzed up on chia seed when they crossed Mexico. Packed with Omega 3 fatty acids, chia seeds give you lots of energy. A staple of the Aztec diet. 190 MXN/kilo.

Helps prevent scurvy, keeps you regular, and lowers cholesterol. Healthy bunch of explorers.

It's Mexico, just wait a little while and you'll find some drama.

I found some right here in the "backyard".



Though I prefer to see it more as "contrast" than "drama".



A sunrise in black and white can be magical.



The magic can even be almost an illusion, like this reflection from the pool.



Rattle the bones, or roll 'em.

Quien mi dijo "moo", cabrones?

My tribute to the "basement", a place bursting with a whole lotta bull...



Proof that Sharknado! can happen anywhere and anytime...



Hey, Trice! That "ship front" on the Mera Madre has got some competition, these days! They're gonna need a bigger boat!
