Lake Chapala Through The Ages – Book Review

Lake Chapala Through The Ages – Book Review

Envision Mexican history as a wild tide rushing in from the east, but not only heading west but north and south, too. Then, complicating matters, that tide retreats leaving spots of settlement, then rushes in again, spreading about only to repeat the process dozens of times. How does one logically explain such a country’s history or discern if these tides have even yet settled? Lake Chapala through the ages could have been a wild, sprawling, confusing book to match her nation’s history, but it’s not. Author Tony Burton managed to accomplish a great amount of order in this 500 year historical review.

Discover The Unique Treasurers of Cempoala Mexico

Discover The Unique Treasurers of Cempoala Mexico

I first discovered Cempoala (sometimes spelled Zempoala) in 1971, only 452 years after Cortés dropped in during 1519. Modern day villagers were delighted to see an outsider. I was virtually passed from family to family to share meals of shrimp soup under palm, mango and banana trees. I questioned: was I touring Mexico or being a unique object on display for the locals?

Located off Federal Highway 180, thirty miles north of Veracruz, the peaceful town is where the first Christian cross was raised on the mainland of the New World.
