Photo: Our Lady of Guadalupe
This image has enormous significance to Latinos. People make pilgrimages to the cathedral outside Mexico City, often walking the final blocks on their knees. When David and I visited, there was a Latino couple from Mesa, Arizona who visited the shrine at the same time. The woman was in tears. When she was a child, her mother took her older brothers and sisters to Mexico to visit the shrine, but she was considered too young.
This week we are featuring photos of Golden Bangkok, Thailand on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. Its elaborate temples are architectural treasures.
