Photographer's Note

This picture was shot in downtown Cuernavaca. To the right are the cathedral grounds. This church here is not the cathedral itself, but the much smaller Capilla del Carmen, where believers seek cures for illnesses.

CUERNAVACA is a rather affluent provincial city, a couple of hours south from Mexico City. There are a handful of interesting colonial buildings, including some of the oldest churches in America.

The city is steeped in conquistador history, but it's most interesting sight is probably the extravagant Casa Robert Brady, which houses an eclectic collection of art and artefacts in the original collector's house.

But for me Cuernavaca is - above all - where Malcolm Lowry wrote (his first version of) Under the Volcano.

"No se puede vivir sin amar - as that estupido wrote on my house!"
