El Tule, Oaxaca City, Mexico

Words can't really describe the feeling when you take the hand of this ancient giant. We had a great time finding our way out there and wandering around. There are lots of hidden faces and at noon bells chime out a tune.

We went just at the end of Semana Santa,the decorations on the church were still up. These are very cool. They make them from palms and make them into these flowers. I had never seen them before.

El Tule is a very special experience, the first time I saw El Tule was in 1990 and I was on a train from Mexico City, that was an experience, this gigantic tree in the middle of no where. I never forgot it. It was so cool to finally visit it in person.
