On the 12th and last day of Christmastide ... a song by Javier Solís, one of Mexico's three greatest singer/actors of the 1940s and 50s, about the Día de Reyes, Mexico's version of Epiphany.

Today we went to Zapopan to:

1. Check out the massive Basilica de Nuestra Señora de Zapopan, the third-most important religious pilgrimage site in Mexico (y'all know what the second-most important is)

2. Explore the Huichol museum attached to the Basilica, where every peso of your admittance fee goes to help evangelize the indigenous Huichols, whether you like it or not

3. Eat some surprisingly delicious Greek food and take some pictures.

Tomorrow we head to the Pacific coast because, well, it's there and it's awesome and our visitors, like any visiting Northerners in January, crave the sand and shore. Buen viaje...
