Voladores de Papantla

The 'Voladores de Papantla' are Totonac Indians, and the voladores rite is a traditional act of worship. now most often performed as entertainment for tourists. The voladores climb to the top of a tall pole, wind ropes around the pole, and then leap off into the air. As the ropes unwind, they descend slowly to the ground. The caporal plays a drum and flute and invokes an ancient spiritual offering in the form of a spectacular dance.

Veracruz Food

Veracruze Food
Mexican street food is some of the most delicious food in the world. Mexico's version of fast food that is found in Villages, Towns & City's.  No matter where I've been in the world, street food has given me the opportunity to see food being cooked and to try what I like the look of. I always make a point of stopping at random food stalls and markets in any city or village I'm in. This is where the locals are and where the everyday people gather.
