After a really long previous day (we didn’t get to our beds until almost sunrise), we opted to have a day off. So we visited the Mexican rainforest again, near a remote mountain village called Xilitla, to visit the home of the extraordinary surrealist architecture of Edward James called Las Pozas.
It was like M. C. Escher meets an elvish city.
Beautiful sculptures and gardens at every turn.
Strange paths the go no where or end abruptly.
Luckily, it was a slow day on the property, and only a handful of tourists were around roaming.
Some of the projects were not completed before Edward James’ death in 1984.
This staircase induces vertigo and has no handholds.
Building with no walls and hidden routes was the normal. It was a fabulous day!
Afterwards, we stopped for a swim at a cave-fed river south of Aquismón. This little boy wouldn’t go away until I took his picture with his minnow.
