Volkswagen Beetle in Taxco, Guerrero, Mexico

The town of Taxco, in the state of Guerrero, Mexico, is already magical. Its architecture, history, and culture is extraordinary. But when you go there and see nothing but Volkswagen Beetles (“Bochos”) serving as taxis, the magic goes unparalleled. The taxis wonder throughout the tiny streets and allies, up and down, like actual beetles, fast and determined. (LFP. 2021).

This is the best airline to travel during COVID19.

You may want to check out my review of Delta Airlines. I flew on Delta in June 2020, from San Francisco to Mexico City with one stop in Salt Lake City, Utah.

This may give you an idea of how things are being handled by airlines and airports, and it is a good reminder of the current measures such as a) wear a facemask, b) practice social distancing, c) avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, d) wash your hands often e) sanitize as much as you can and as often as possible, to prevent the spread of COVID19 while traveling. I have the best things to say about Delta Airlines so far.

Watch the video and you’ll find out the details. Remember that things are going from green to yellow to red every day, meaning, everything can change at any time without notice.

That is easy to notice when it comes to travel and transportation. Please also note that there are trends and tendencies and that is something good to observe. One obvious tendency is the fact that airports and airlines are finding more and clearer ways to handle this pandemic.

To Fly in Honor of Santiago, The Apostle.

(Travel) – A key event during one of the many “Fiestas de Santiago” festivities in Mexico, the dancing and flying men of Cuetzalan (not to be confused with The Flying Men of Papantla) offer an amazing spectacle with plenty of cultural and religious meaning.

They are a favorite at the “Fiestas” de Santiago Yancuictlalpan, celebreated each year near Cuetzálan Puebla, a few hours from Mexico City. This is not just a show, it is a tradition for which each one of the flying men prepares during several days prior to the big moment. The preparation includes fasting, prayer, solidarity in community, and reflection.

In some occasions, this may be a passing ceremony for a young man, and to be included in this group is considered an honor.

The “Fiestas de Santiago Apostol” celebrated on July 25 each year, are a well attended festivity for those who religiously celebrate this and other Catholic traditions. I attended this event and took video with my Iphone in July, 2012, and I must say it felt magical to witness the religiosity and fervor of this important group of Native-Mexicans –many of them speak Nahuatl in addition to Spanish.
