Catemaco Cross

Until a few years ago, when the day was clear, a small cross was visible from Catemaco City on the top of one of its major surrounding ex-volcanoes, Cerro Puntiagudo. Probably constructed with the same techniques that they use on the local roads, the cross collapsed a few years ago. 

There is now a local grass root effort to replace the cross. SEND MONEY! Because it will need about 750 people from Catemaco to carry 20 pounds each, up hill several hundred feet, to build a new cross.

Let's see if there are any Olmecs left in Catemaco!
