Shall we dance?

I'm home from my vacation in Mexico where I took the train to Copper Canyon. Along the way, I saw this:

The Yaqui Indians live mostly in Sonora, Mexico. One of their best-known rituals is the Deer Dance, shown above. The man doing it was friendly, like most Mexican people I met on my trip. From what he said, I could tell that he was proud that he is 64 years old and still dances.

These images were taken with my Canon. I'll post more later from my trip after I have a chance to go through them.


  1. that's a lot of maracasses...maracii? Anybody?


  2. It looks like candy apples. Glad you are having fun.

  3. All this was on the train? Welcome back - hope you had a nice holiday.

  4. Thanks to all who commented.

    @Wolynski: The train was only two days of the seven. The Yaqui Indians were before the train ride.
