Let me share yet one more of our vacation days. This is already day seven and it's a Sunday. We wake up and get ready as we will be attending mass. It's supposed to be a special day since my uncle is taking us to this little town call Agualuco.
Notice the circular shape of the church. The architecture is conservative, but I wouldn't know what style architecture it is.
The plan was to attend this small church in Agualulco a very small town between Santa Maria and Tetipac. We all got ready and again got in the truck and the bed of the truck and headed for church. Sadly there was no scheduled mass for this particular Sunday so when we got there it was empty.
The interior is beautiful too. It's kept pretty clean and while we were there some ladies were changing old flowers for some fresh ones.
At least it was open, so we all went in to see it. See, my grandfather on my dad's side raised a lot of the money used to build it, he did this during his last years of life and that is the reason that this particular church is special to us. I remember my dad asking us to donate a few dollars so he could send them to my grandfather in Mexico.
A couple more scenes from the church in Agualulco.
This is a very pretty church that is totally different from the rest. As this is not an old historical church but a new temple with a new design. The church is round and modern and in it's own way very pretty too. I know my grandfather was very proud. I had seen pictures from when it was being built so it was nice to actually see it finished and in person.
So, after a short visit we decided to keep going all the way to Tetipac. We got there in time to hear mass there. After mass we did some shopping and then we all went to eat to a small restaurant where two of my cosing work. If you are wondering what we ate, wonder no more, yes we ate tacos. Ummmmmm que rico!
After we ate, we went to the mercado and bought more food, more gifts, and some miscellaneous items.
On a side note, did I mention that on day four we ate... drum roll please!!! Ready, yeap believe it or not but we ate SKUNK! Peuwww! We ate a little piece of skunk meat for medicinal purposes. Skunk meat acts as a mosquito repelent, and help for the skin not to get irritated when bitten.
