Danza del Volador, dance of the bird man.
A folklore activity of Mexicans, in former days a fertility ritual for a Totonec rain god. We have seen them in the Chapultepec park, near the anthropological museum.
The pole is approximately 30 meters high. 5 exotic dressed men climb to the top of the pole. 4 of them have a rope around their waist of which the other end has been fastened just beneath the platform. On the flute tones and drumming of the LEADER (above in the pole) the 4 other men let themselves fall with their head down. With stretch out arms every ' flyer ' completes exactly 13 rotations, before ending up on the ground. The total number of, 4x13=52, corresponds to the cycle of the Aztec calendar.


  See here the 4 aviators and the man in the top.


The dance has almost been completed.


Back on the ground again. The man direct left of the pole was the pole sitter, the man with flute and drum.

We fly further.......

Tot nu toe betreft het een viertal vakanties: Suriname, Egypte, Peru, Bolivia en Mexico. Verder een kort fotoverslag van de zonsverduistering in 1999 te noord-frankrijk in de buurt van het plaatsje Spincourt. Er is een mogelijkheid om mijn gastenboek te tekenen.
