During my first trip to Arizona in 1978 to visit the Cotsones relatives we took a ride down to Nogales, Mexico. Shopping was plentiful with wonderful shops filled with gold jewelry, pottery, leather crafts and watering holes serving one dollar margaritas in champagne coupes. Pictured here is a donkey souvenir photo cart that I did not take advantage of where you can climb aboard, don your sombrero and smile for the camera. Sadly the donkey had a trip wire around his knees to keep him stationary that I only saw now after scanning the photo to my desktop. The mural depicts the story of Mexico’s Romeo and Juliet – Iztaccíhuatl and Popocatépetl. Unfortunately Izta died of a broken heart waiting for her beloved Iztaccíhuatl and the gods turn them into volcanos covered in snow. I'm especially delighted with the blue sky, blue building and blue volcano in the mural. The reds pop against the blue palette and the little white donkey waits patiently for his oats and water while the broom sits of to the right. Everything about the photo is right, not that I was trying particularly hard but years later I'm enjoying it as if I was there today. Gracias!
