Cristo de las Noas

Cristo de las Noas is a statue in Torreón in the Mexican state of Coahuila. Noas are a kind of cactus.

I have been in Coahuila and Torreón before, but did not have the opportunity to see the statue close by. Even the museums were closed, when I was there, though I decided to take a detour to Torreón, because it is a shorter detour as it would be on my next trip to Mexico, when I will not go further North than to Jalisco.

To read about this trip to Torreón, please follow the link to Coahuila and scroll down to the 25th Nov 2018.

Durango – the State of the Movies

Actually on Mondays museums are closed in Mexico and I used the time to update my blog – all the days for Durango including photos and links.

The site is a little about the state of Durango, but more of the city Victoria de Durango as well as the scenery for the Wild West movies, produced in the state of Durango, for example the classical Western movies with John Wayne. Next time I watch such a movie, I will have another picture behind my eyes than long time ago, when I was watching some of them.

The Mexicans are pilgrims for the sites and even the commercial one, called “Paseo del Viejo Oeste”. I was going there as well, but not really with the same intention. Anyway, you can read about the result by following the link for Durango.
