Xela has hundreds of statues. The one on the photograph is located in front of the Municipal Theater (14 av. z 1). Other locations like the Central Park, the Benito Juarez park, Parque Bolivar. The most important and beautiful ones are located on the Cementery, but many bad people have cut heads and another parts of the statues for sale. You need to take a photo-walk, because in few years time there want be left anymore.

I can bet that when they read the title of the photo you are scared! but no quiet is just a couch with a skull carved back, this almost always see in places of piercings, tattoos, skates, etc.. Have you seen anything more sinister than that?
Puedo apostar que cuando leyeron el título de la foto ustedes se asustaron! pero nó tranquilos es solo un sofa con un grafiti de una Calavera atrás, esto casi siempre lo vemos en lugares de perforaciones, tatuajes, skates, etc. ¿Haz visto algo más tenebroso que esto?
This was always my favorite, is located within “El Artesano Bakery” (antes “El Infinito”) and well as these there are many around Xela, some have been painted by foreign visitors and other local artists.
If anyone know what would be your favorite mural in Xela?

It’s that time again! Processions, cotton candy, too many people in the streets annnnd……marching bands!! Feria is upon us and everyone is happy. The downside is the noise pollution, while in some parts of the city it’s under control, but here in the center, I can currently hear 3 songs playing at once; one marimba, one bachata and the other is…Adele…? Yes. I LOVE feria!
Windows and doors give us a possibility of going “inside”…or outside for that matter. I read a very good quote the other day that said, that God often closes a door and opens a window, but we look so long at the closed door, we don’t even SEE the open window. Ahhh, sage advice.

It seems like these days, there is a “Day” for everything and I am not a big fan of all of that. Secretary Day, Teacher Day, Lawyer Day…really? Can’t we just celebrate who we all are everyday? Then again I am not a fan of other holidays either, like Valentines Day, etc. But to be honest, I DO like the International Day of the Indigenous Woman. I’m not sure I like celebrating every possible profession, race or gender that exists, but the artwork and education that surrounds these ‘holidays’ is often outstanding and worth the attention.
