Today we went to Zaachila with Arnulfo. He showed us the ancient
tombs of the Zapotec royalty. We were able to go down into two
of them. Afterwards we walked the village and then went to La Capilla
for a tasty lunch. We met Ivonne Kennedy and her husband Hector.
She is a painter and has exhibited in Portland and Hector is
a biologist working on a project not to far from here to protect a type
of parrot that is endangered . His project is 2 1/2 hours from here
up in the mountains above Teotitlan de Valle.
Really interesting and nice people. Another great day.
