"Our little group was convinced there were caves lurking everywhere in the state of Jalisco and our technique for finding them was simple. We would pick a pueblito somewhere, go to the plaza and walk up to one of the old-timers inevitably sitting there on a bench, warming himself in the early-morning sun.

Or the life to come, what I hear is the murmur
Of underground streams, what I see is a limestone landscape."
