This week in the Photo of the Week:

"Mexican hat"

photo of the week

Peter-Jan Vermeij is ill and was not able to contribute to Photo of the Week 120.

(even though he really would have loved to, because it so happens he is somewhat of a Mexico aficionado and he would probably have dug up some groovy memory to write about - from horrendous death-threats by Federales in a very anonymous desert, to scarce, invigorating and o so colorful thundershowers in another anonymous desert; from presidential elections discussed at a DF laundromat to the brilliant Oaxacan festival Guelaguetza; from Van Halen club Cabo Wabo to the last Mayan villages in the Chiapan jungle; from the best waves he ever swam in, to the only King Vulture he ever saw; from the gringo who was taught 'goodnight' is 'buenas nachas' (nice buttocks) by locals, to the single father who taught himself and his son English from notebooks he filled with personal phonetic descriptions of words and expressions uttered by tourists and travelers; and so on, and so on – there's a lot to write about when it comes to Mexico. also, the themes death, love, festivity and celebration are never far off in any of those topics.)

Note: Mexican Hat is also a town in the United States, Utah to be precise. The tiny village is named as such because of a nearby rock formation which resembles, of course, a sombrero. Actually, Peter-Jan unknowingly drove right through it once, en route from Monument Valley to Lake Powell on US 163 – a very recommendable stretch of asphalt.

Until the next Photo of the Week!
