The Sacred Architecture of Central Mexico

Catedral de Guadalajara

Whether you are a religious person or NOT – the architecture of the sacred places in Central Mexico is an inspiring and world class marvel.

On a recent trip, I captured images inside and out of cathedrals in Guadalajara (Catedral Metropolitano, Templo Expiatorio, (and many others), in Ajijic, Chapala, Jocotepec, Jiquipan, Tizpan, San Cristobal and Petatan.

For me, and I am not Catholic, these structures- many of which took 100 years and 3 generations to build – are humbling – and are a testament to the creative genius of the human spirit and the penchant to create unique and special places for the celebration of the God-Man relationship. Needless to say, they memorialize the centrality of religion in Mexican culture.

The Pelicans of Petatan Mexico – Lake Chapala – VIDEO

The Petatan Pelicans of Lake Chapala

A journey to the other side of Lake Chapala…to encounter the amazing Pelicans of Petatan. These are white Pelicans from Canada that migrate to the waters surrounding this small isthmus village – each year. They reside here between late October and March every year. The music that accompanies the video was LIVE via the restaurant PA system where the video was captured. ENJOY!!! Take a day or 2 or 3 and drive from Ajijic or Chapala and visit the wonderful towns and villages on the south shore of Lake Chapala…It’s marvelous…
