This afternoon I decided to head out to San Bartolo Coyotepec. This can be done by heading to the bus station with buses and vans heading to Ocotlan. As it is Sunday and a slow season (after Dia de los Muertos and before Christmas), I wondered what in the town would be open and whether I would be able to get a tour of the art this region is known for.
As I was rifling through my bag to dig out my seven peso fare, I saw this group seated and waiting. I had to get a photo of this mix of people, instruments, and other cargo that would all pile into a van. Just as I snapped the shot from my bus window, a van pulled in and blocked the view. Getting the photo, to me, was a good sign that there would be plenty to see on my adventure.
