The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Coatzacoalcos River

Do anything, but let it produce joy.
From Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller.

The legend claims the Quetzalcoatl the Aztec god was on board of a raft made of a serpent skin and navigated until became lost into the horizon. Ever since the river has been known as the Coatzacoalcos River which means “The place where the serpent hides.”


Gracias por su visita. / Thanks for visiting, its most appreciated.

Excellent photo, and it's made better by the man looking out of the frame.

I was wondering if the title meant you would tell us about Quetzalcóatl! My Mum told me the legends when I was small, the valuable feathers and snake. Great shot. But that I don't need to say anymore!
