El Tajin is famous for the voloedores,
'flying' performers who recreate a native ceremony. Four men fall backwards,
to the accompanyment of a flautist, from the top of a pole, held only be
a rope attached to their foot. They spin around a symbolic 13 times, coming
ever closer to the ground with each rotation. It is an impressive welcome
to the beautiful grounds that Susan and I fell in love with on our first
trip together through Mexico.
