El Pipila

El Pipila

As my millions of fans know, Nadia and I spent the first two weeks of November in Mexico. We renewed our vows in grand Mexican fashion, and took a mini-honeymoon to Guanajuato, a gorgeous little tourist town a couple of hours away from Guadalajara.

This is El Pipila, one of many revolutionary figures made legend across Mexico. The statue sits atop the hill abreast of Guanajuato, and is truly magnificent as he looms over the city.

It's just one of many memorable bits from our trip; I'll be posting more over the winter, if for no other reason than it lets me contemplate something other than Vancouver's incessant winter rain.
