The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Cuernavaca Balcony


Cuernavaca is located about 85 km. (50 miles) south of Mexico City on the M-95 freeway. It is known as "the city of eternal spring" because of its consistent 27 °C year-round weather. Cuernavaca is truly in the heart of Mexico, and is surrounded by some of the most beautiful and culturally rich regions of the country.
The city's name comes from Nahuatl Cuauhnāhuac "place near trees" (IPA: [kʷawˈnaːwak]), the name of the pre-Columbian altepetl at the location. The name was altered to Cuernavaca by influence of the Spanish words cuerno "horn" and vaca "cow". From Wiki.

Estas ventanas son vistosas. 27º durante todo el año no es primavera eterna, es el paraíso! :)

Ahora, dime, la pronunciación de Cuauhnāhuac suena siquiera parecido a "Cuernavaca"?

Fenix, en realidad es casi paradisiaco y tan cerca de la ciudad. El nombre es el original en lengua indigena Nahuatl, Cuernavaca es la adaptacion al español. Cuando visites Mexico seguramente te va a encantar.
Melanie, tu observacion del regreso en la noche a la ciudad por carretera es todo un espectaculo!
Gracias por sus visitas!

The colour of the building and the bars on the window are so typical of so many photos I took in Mazatlán. Lovely!

Kate, that color is very typical in Mexico, and this kind of windows too, mostly in small cities and towns. Thanks for your visit, its most appreciated.
