God, Mammon and the Mountain

Swing past the bronze statue of John Paul II on the eponymous boulevard, and la Nueva Morelia, now re-christened Altozano, nee Montaña Monarca, bounds with options — the Tec de Monterrey’s Morelia Campus, the yet-unopened golf course, and Paseo Morelia. The university has been up and running for several years, and bets are still on about when Latin America’s next big shopping center will be open for business. Will the chapel open first?

This is beginning to sound more and more like Mexico’s version of Ave Maria, the Naples, Florida, planned community.

    Altozano? Bronze statue of John Paul II? Methinks it’s time for a return trip to Morelia to see the changes.
    The month of May is very likely. Just in time for the rainy season.
