Like a teenager ignoring their friends at dinner by chatting with online acquaintances instead, I did not realize this man praying in Templo de San Cristobal until after editing the shot a day later. Mexico is a country full of impressive churches with towering domes like Granada’s Cathedral, but the smaller ones vary so much visiting many hardly gets dull.
Mexicans pray passionately as they do in Tbilisi though the rituals changes from church to church, often dramatically. Yet you might miss them if you focus too long on the architecture or getting the right angle for your photo. You’ll just have to decide what you want to give up; but sparing a moment for a memory isn’t a travel decision we tend to regret.
