The ghost of Quechula
- Briefly last month, the 16th century Dominican church of Santiago
Quechula in northern Chiapas re-emerged briefly from the
temporarily receding waters behind the Malpaso dam - an almost
miraculous apparition in the eyes of many former residents of
this long abandoned pueblo.
Our October page focuses this event, and on what is known of this
distinctive but poorly documented early colonial monument.
Note: Espada=F1a Press will host a book exhibit at the forthcoming
UCLA Maya Weekend, October 5th & 6th 2002. We look forward to
meeting aficionados there.
