Museo Nacional de la Cerámica

When we arrived at the museum that we'd been directed to on our mask hunt, they told us that they didn't have masks and sent us on to the Museo Nacional de la Cerámica.  That one does have masks, but it's a permanent display which we'd seen before and not the display we were looking for.  But now that we know more about the masks and their significance, we got more photos.  I don't think I posted any when we went before.

You can see in this and all the other Tonala photos that the Tonala masks are again quite different from anywhere else.

The people at this museum told us to go back to the one we'd been at before.  I was skeptical.

On the way back, we ran into a couple of girls getting ready for the dance.
