Hierve el agua (Boiling water) From my always living love affair with Oaxaca

Hierve el agua or Boiling water is a place located about an hour from Oaxaca city. It has an outrageous view, and petrified waterfalls and water springs. When I went for the first time the road was terrible: a tortuous way trough the mountains. We had to stop twice in order to clean the road clogged with rocks and tree branches. The next time, the way was closed because of conflicts between the two neighbor communities for the control of the place. Last time I was there the road had improved a lot, and a pool and some buildings were being built. Somehow, I feel the place is going to change, and maybe not for good. But anyway, it is still a paradise that you better visit soon.

Nash! It's a great pleasure to see you around here, thank you so much for your comment.
I love to learn: by traveling, by writing, by reading, by teaching. And be sure I’m learning a lot from all of you, too.

Pues sí, parece que fuimos juntos, solo que no tengo tanta suerte. Esa foto la tome hace ya diez años,estábamos solos, no había nadie,tomaba fotos con una vieja canon T-60 con un objetivo de 28-50 mm.; recuerdo que a mitad de la tarde me quedé sin cartuchos, justo cuando al luz comenzaba a cambiar y adquirir tonos extraordinarios: poca paciencia y me arrepiento de ello.

Ada: En efecto, me llevé LA CITA de tu entrada.
A veces me atormenta ese asunto de hasta dónde citar fuentes... el bendito APUD que prohibían mis maestros de la facultad de citar la fuente que cita a...
En este caso, ya lo pongo. Gracias de nuevo.
