Featured Picture

A market scene in Papantla, Mexico, north of Vera Cruz along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. A Totonac Indian in traditional white cotton attire looks over the market. Visiting the market from the countryside, this man stands in sharp contrast with the couple in the more westernized clothing selling food in the foreground. Galvanized metal roofing in the background protects the market stalls from rain. The hill behind the market is characterized by tropical vegetation. The Totonac were the first natives that Cortés met on landing in Mexico in 1519. The modern Totonac are industrious farmers. The major crop in the hills around Papantla is the vanilla bean.

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." ~ Mark Twain
