Archeological zones
The Roof over Cacaxtla covers 10,000 square meters. It is the second largest roof in the world over an archeological zone. The first largest covers the terracotta soldiers in China. Xochitecatl is about 300 years older than Cacaxtla, they are about a mile apart from each other. Thousands of small figures were recovered from Xochitecatl, almost all of them female forms which leads archeologists to believe it was possibly a Matriarchal society or at the very least a place dedicated to fertility rites. it has four major structures, pyramid of the flowers, pyramid of the serpent, beginnings of a structure known as pyramid or base of the Volcano building and a Spiral Pyramid that was dedicated to the Wind God Ehecatl.

A Roman Javelin Point
The photo is somewhat dark, but I believe it to be one piece iron, 4 sided point with a tapered metal ferral, which attached the pictured point a wooden spear (Javelin). I have read that many Roman military weapons and other artifacts have surfaced in a large swampy area in Ireland and I have forgotten the name of the swamp or marsh area where a Roman Legion(s) happened to be crossing, who were ambushed by Celtic warriors, killing every Roman Soldier mired in the peat or mud and unable to defend themselves. This battle gound has kept it's dead and secrets until recent modern times. I believe that this swamp has been host to many archaeologists who hope to fill in this era of the Irish archaeological record.

lovely wine
I used to think the same thing about twist off caps for wine; they would be cheap tasting. Nope, not the case! It's getting more and more popular because there is less risk of oxygen ruining the precious wine inside. The kiwis and ausies have been doing it for a long time and the rest of the world finally seems to be catching on. Go on, enjoy that wine! besos y brazos ~ Laura

Tlaxcala..the land of the cornbread
Krystal... next time you-re in Tlaxcala call me. Immigrations in San Pablo Apetatitlan, just outside of Tlaxcala, not far from the zoo... are a lots more cordial than other places. Note> You can get papaers Apostillados at the American Embassy in Mexico City. ATAH Bus lines *Apizaco , has a first class bus that goes to Veracruz *the Ejecutivo. My favorite places to eat in Tlaxcala. SHARONS on Guerrero Street ...Carnes Asadas. Also for Comidas Corridas...homecooked meals at $30 pesos, Joques on Mu;oz Camargo street.

Krystal, Glad you made it to Veracruz! If you want help in the future with getting settled, suggestions for restaurants/hotels, etc I will be glad to help. :-) Sometimes it's fun to venture out and explore, and as you are here more often you will learn to look out for signs that things aren't quite what they seem (like the rent by the hour motels). Also most chains here are terrible. Sambors, VIPS, El Porton are all awful. They are bland and overpriced, owned by Wal-mart and other American companies trying to sell the 'upscaled' atmosphere to unsuspecting Mexicans. Street food is much better and more authentic. There are some good restaurants around too. Again, let me know if you make it back through here!

Lamb Stew
I recently enjoyed the Medieval Banquet at Bunratty Castle. It was wonderful. The show was fabulous and the meal delicious. My very favorite part of the dinner was the lamb stew. I grew up thinking that I didn't like lamb stew until I ate it at Bunratty. It was out of this world! I have been trying to find a receipe for it since my return home but without any luck. Maybe someday I will be able to return to Ireland. If so, I will make it a point to once again enjoy the Medieval Banquet at Bunratty Castle.

Purchasing coffee mugs...
We enjoyed the Bunratty Castle banquet very much. We were able to buy two coffee mugs like the ones you served coffee in after the banquet. However, recently they were both broken by accident. Since they had become our morning coffee mugs, we would like to replace them. They were of the same color as the mead was served in at the banquet. Can you tell me how we can purchase them? Thanks very much... Tom Geirin
