Photo highlights from Querétaro State

A post with the relevant details of our trip to Querétaro, Tequisquiapan, & the Freixenet Winery will be forthcoming, but for now the behind-in-her-readings MBA student can only be bothered to post a few of the random photo highlights of our 3 day trip to the state of Querétaro….

I love this picture-- beat up Ford truck, manly-man in a cowboy hat, and the damned girliest kick-dog this side of the Rio Grande perkily riding along in the truck bed.

I was pleased to learn that the hilarity of writing "Wash Me" (lavame) on a filthy car is an act that transcends all cultures

You may be expecting to see the typical ropes to ring the bells in this tower? Not here folks-- these bell ringers had better be some of the most agile kids in town. I reckon the business side of that bell could fling a child halfway across town .

John's new thing is when I pressure him to pose for a jack-ass photo, I am forced to pose for one return. Here's me, trying to fly higher than an eagle.

Looking back, I'm surprised I hadn't seen one of these stickers sooner in México. Roughly translated: "In this home, WE ARE CATHOLICS. We do not accept propaganda of other religions. God bless this home."  More roughly translated: "Back off, you dirty Lut'rns; we don't want you or your up-to-no-good pal Martin Luther hanging 'round these parts."

    You probably already know that the sign saying “In This Home We are Catholics, etc.” isn’t really about scaring off Lutherans! It’s actually directed toward Jehovah’s Witnesses, Latter Day Saints (Mormons), and the more aggressively evangelical Christians, all of whom proselytize heavily in all parts of Mexico.

    Hi Cristina! Yes, I figured the messages were targeted at the slightly more aggressive/proactive religions, but figured I’d subtly warn my parents that they may want to rethink their plans to bring their Martin Luther statue along on their trip this spring… ;)
