I "lost" a few days but I am now up and out of bed. I had the "shouldn't have eaten that taco from a street vendor" crud. I only took two bites and immediately knew not to eat another bite. Rick took the remainder of the taco and gave it to a street dog...he took one sniff and ran away (the dog, not my husband). At that moment I knew I might be in for some trouble.
Therefore, I am not feeling especially wordy this week but wanted to share a few photos from one of my very favorite villages Tzintzuntzan meaning place of the hummingbirds in the Purépecha (Tarascan) language. Try saying it (pronounced) szeen-SZOON-szahn with the accent on the SZOON it will make you smile!
Here's a short photo tour have a great weekend I've included some links that will deliver much more on this very special village.
Warm regards and hasta pronto-
Have a great weekend!
