Ancient Proverbs: 7 – The Mexicans.

It’s not enough to know how to ride — you must also know how to fall.
~ Mexican Proverb

My stepfather is from Guanajuato City, Guanajuato, Mexico. This is a historic Mexican site for several reasons but most notably would be

  • the 111 human mummies that are on display in a building next to the ancient, sprawling cemetery; and
  • the revolutionary history associated with the building called the Alhondiga de Ganaditas (an old town granary), on which an insurrectionist head was hung at each corner following an uprising.

His hometown is a beautiful place, but, unfortunately it is one of the only places in Mexico that I have traveled to so far.
