Day 159 Sun Dancers

Another post about Mexico. This is so typical of me; when I take a trip, it takes me quite a while to be "back." I find lots of ways to extend the trip, and will probably spend a lot of time in the coming months reading about Mexico. You can bet that come the 20-30 degree below zero weather next winter in ND I'll be thinking a lot about Mexico again!!!!

This is a series of photos about the Sun Dancing ritual that was demonstrated at Xcaret in Mexico. This took during the blazing heat of the noon sun.




If you click on this next photo, you can read about the sun dancers:
This last words of this should have read "and this concludes the rite."

Beautiful colors-especially for in the bright sun like that. I guess I have to add "sun dancer" to the list of jobs I'd be too chicken to do. :-)
