Photographer's Note

On a drive to Las Brisas, the expensive suburb high in the city, we visited the Chapel of Peace. This memorial chapel features the famous Trouyet Cross and offers superb views of Acapulco's Bay. Built by Carlos and Millie Hauss Trouyet as a tribute to their sons Carlos and Jorge, who died in an airplance accident while returning to Acalpulco from Mexico City in 1967.It is a long story, but this is one of the big items to see on ship cruise tours. The cross towers 128 feet (40 meters) above the non-denominational chapel and 1,200 feet above Acalpulco Bay. One can see this cross from virtually any where in Acapulco. You will see it on my next shot on our our departure from the city.
