The bride and groom put their heads together and share a private moment at their wedding party. Weekends are full of celebrations complete with traditional food and dancing in the street. After the church wedding, the couple walked through the streets of town following musicians. They collected family members who carried food to the street blocked off for the party.
Mexico's narrowest point is the Isthmus of Tehuantepec--flat, country where the Zapotec culture is still strong. Women take leading role in business and government. The Isthmus never became part of the Aztec Empire and resistance to the Spanish was strong in the mid-1500s.
