    Tzintzuntzan: the place of the hummingbirds

    Tzintzuntzan

    Once the center of Tarascan power, it's about 15 kilometers from Patzcuaro.The stone structures are called yacatas and have a panoramic view of the lake. In town, the Franciscan monestary is 16th century and the olive trees supposedly planted by Vasco de Quiroga. A nice afternoon excursion.

    Patients lining up outside the Lions Club

    In the two days of eye clinics, we were able to see over 300 patients, giving out glasses or arrnaging for other needed services - ie cataract surgery. It was my first clinic trip and the experience was very fulfilling both from the aspect of providing a service that many people in the area did not have a chnace of receiving, but also in the interactions with the local Lions members and our interpretors who all worked very hard in making the clinic and our stay in Patcuaro a very enjoyable one.

    view from Volcan del Estribo Grande

    To get to Volcan del Estribo Grande you'll need to take a taxi - but the views are worth the effort.
