121-2178_IMG.JPG (144468 bytes)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.

Pat admiring the Temple of the Plumed Serpent.  The walls are beautifully preserved.

This snake had a pretty good set of choppers as well as a forked tongue.

The museum in Mexico City houses a great collection of pre-Columbian art.

Perhaps inspired by the art work, Lenny and Carol forget where they are.
