A Well-Painted Truck
Which seems to say Standalo...
Just a very yellow small church.
Do you see the chicken?
These are yucca flowers hanging on our gate. Guillermo cut them from one of the three spiky plants which you can see below.
Close-up of the flowers
Guillermo and Tere call them flores de palmo, but they are I'm pretty sure some kind of yucca. The flowers look like Adam's Needle yucca, but the plants themselves are quite tall, maybe ten feet or so.
Anyway, at times when they are in season, they are highly prized, made into a sauce that is served with chicken or eggs. I gave this bunch to Tere. We were going to split them with Guillermo, but they started to go bad in the heat and he wasn't there to take any. Tere made the sauce and brought us a container which we had over chicken and rice. It was a nice, mild white sauce with a hint of picante.
In the picture below, you see a young man in Coatepec who was carrying a bag protesting anti-immigration sentiment. He and his friends were speaking Spanish, but of course the message is for English speakers. The Missionaries of St. Charles Scalabrinians are religious who serve migrants all over the world. You can learn about them here.
