Flying with the 'bird men' of Papantla, Mexico


They fly through the air with the greatest of ease, these Totonac "bird men" re-enacting ancestral traditions in their home town of Papantla, located on forested hills a four-hour drive or one-hour flight from Mexico City in this country's northern Totonacapán region of Veracruz state (it's four hours by bus from the city of Veracruz). It's truly a great show - and furthermore a true slice of authentic Mexican culture with pre-Hispanic origins dating back to 600 AD.
