PHI SIGMA DELTA
Have you seen the Master Card ad where all these old guys and their wives are at a reunion, and everyone is overweight and losing their hair, and they're all jumping in the water and looking pretty foolish? Well ours wasn't like that - nobody jumped in the water. Mostly we just took pictures of each other (Burt took at least 500) and told the same stories we told the last time we got together.
We stayed at a very nice resort in Cauatla called Cocoyoc (coyote in an indigenous language). The resort was a sugar plantation in the sixteenth century and was once the home of Moctezuma and Benito Juarez. Much of the old hacienda has been preserved and incorporated into the new buildings.
We took a side trip to Taxco. This is a lovely old city whose only apparent industry is selling silver to American tourists. We had a great lunch at a restaurant which was accessible by cable car.
On our final day together we went to the Xochicalco ruins near Cuernavaca to see the Temple of the Plumed Serpent, and then on to Mexico City where we visited the famous Museum of Anthropology.
