Mexico


Sal went to Mexico last weekend for a quinceanera. He hadn’t been in about 16 years so he was way overdue. Since I didn’t go and can’t report first hand, I’ll post some photo’s with the explanation-ish. Lol!

This is Sal’s Godfather Miguel. He lives in Mexico so he doesnt get to see him that often. Im glad they got to catch up.

This is Sal’s Grandpa. He’s not with us anymore, but the family say’s that Roman looks a lot like him. They both have blue eyes which he didn’t get from me or Sal. I think it’s from Grandpa Ramirez (above) and Grandma Kirkpatrick.

 

This is an old church with huge doors. Sal was impressed with them, and even though I just get to see them in the picture, so am I.

This was inside the church. It’s so old!! 1716 and still amazing!

This little girl is inside the church. The story behind her is that she wanted to get baptized but her parents wouldn’t let her do it. The father of the church did it anyways to her parents dismay. Her parents killed her for it so the church embalmed her.

What the hell!!!!  Who could do that to their kid???  Crazy ass ppl!

These statues are great aren’t they? The bottom is the snake, the top is the bird. I think it’s an interpretation of the Mexican flag. But maybe that’s just me!

There was a circus coming into town and this was out front of Sal’s Grandma’s house. It looks blind in one eye.  Sad but beautiful.

All the boys!!!

The trip sounded like an amazing time and I look forward to going someday. I think one of the coolest things that Sal said though was that he saw everything through my eyes because I told him to take pictures. He saw the detail, he saw the color, he saw the beauty!

    Great pictures and story! It’s great to explore another culture…you do find some strange stuff. That embalmed girl, for example… wow!
