Photo: Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, Guadalupe, Arizona
The Pascua Yaquis fled repression in Mexico in 1900 and settled in this area. A 1 square mile town site was laid out for them by 1914. The community today retains its character of being both Pascua Yaqui Native American and Latino.
The street names are in Spanish. There is a vibrant Mexican Market. Obviously this church is Hispanic. The community celebrates many festivals that preserve their culture.
This week we are featuring photos of Golden Bangkok, Thailand on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. Its elaborate temples are architectural treasures.
