MA

I visited Monte Alban at the beginning of October, still deep in the rainy season here. The last real rains, however, came on October 31, the beginning of Dia de Los Muertos. Since then, it has been dry. As a result, the usually verdant Monte Alban with its plush grasses and beautiful trees, was yellow on its way to brown. There were patches of “grass” that were more cracked soil than vegetation.

Of course, this sacred space is still gloriously beautiful in its “winter” state, but I was worried what it might mean for M’s photo safari and for you, loyal readers. And then I came across these renderings of Monte Alban by students in San Martin Tilcajete. Enjoy this sacred space through their eyes.
