In the green morning, before
Love was destiny,
The sun was king,
And God was famous.
In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, I tried to capture the “green” of Oaxaca, Mexico—a place known more for its reds, pinks, and blues than green but here’s what I discovered tooling around el centro.
Today I also learned about the Batallón San Patricio. In a nutshell, this was a battalion of a few hundred immigrants, mostly from Catholic Ireland and Germany, who fought on the side of Mexico against the United States during the Mexican-American War. Fascinating story!
