An Aztec Party

The Aztec scene might have been pretty much decimated by the Conquistadors a few hundred years ago, with their religious beliefs being supplanted by Catholicism, their temples being ground down to build cathedrals and their food being replaced by gorditas and other oily dishes. But there are still enough people willing to keep the old traditions alive, albeit in limited and modernised forms, to be noticed.

There is a grand old statue to Cuitlahuac on Reforma that drew dozens of colourfully atired believers on Sunday. The reason, the date and the cause eludes me, but I’m sure it was a ccelebraion of something important. For me it was just a good photo opportunity.
