Forest of Palms - Bosque de Palmas; al sur de Zapotitlán Palmas, Región Mixteca, Oaxaca, Mexico

These palms are used to make hats; long ago people used to measure distances by how long it took to weave a hat (while walking) - for example - "that village is 2 hats away". Area de palmas y yuca - area of palms and yuccas; al sur de Zapotitlán Palmas, al norte de Huajapan de León, Oaxaca, Mexico
