Better than the Sistine Chapel

We only had one day in Guadalajara, it was just a stopover to catch a flight to Cabo, but we loved it, a big city, very mexican. And I finally got to see an Orozco mural. I have waited about 17 years to see one of these, and I was not disappointed. Even Nick was impressed. Unfortunately it was almost impossible to photograph, cant get the sense of scale, but it was so beautiful, and brilliant, in the immaculate University of Guadalajara.

The university old building, the mural is in the domed room
in the middle - can just see the roof.

The domed ceiling, 3 stories up.

My favourite figure, this is huge.
