Sunset Sunday – A Tour Bus Stop in Santiago Tuxtla, Veracruz

“Craig how much time do you need?” asked Jesus. “Two minutes, maybe three.” I responded.  And even though we were late for our evening reception in Catemaco, he could make that work. At first, I hoped to capture the sunset on the lake in Catemaco, but the sun would not wait for us like the […]
