People often ask me about how safe Mexico is…
Having traveled here for over 20 years, I have never been robbed or felt unsafe as a tourist or as an explorer in the field. But I have relied on guides as well as good local advice.
Saying all that… I’m currently being driven around in a Land Rover that has bullet proof windows and Kevlar lined interior including full engine protection.
Being wealthy in Mexico is dangerous. I stay in a gated community that has 24 hour camera surveillance, with security guards moving throughout the area at night.
Cretaceous fossil fish quarries in Tepexic Puebla state, Mexico.
The quarries are mined for paving and roofing sand stone, formed in tidal mudflats during the Cretaceous period 100 millions years ago.
All the specimens found are donated to the university for study, over the last 60 years over 10,000 specimens have been found. The numbers in the quarry wall are references to identify which layers the fossils are found, as well as which quarry site.
There is a small museum in town and there were many real fossils and some replicas that explains the geology of the area. A flamingo as well as reptiles and turtles are found here as well.
Museo de la Evolucion Puebla City, Puebla State Mexico
Where size matters. One of Rosie’s distant relatives.
I visited here about two years ago. They bought all the “Deep Time” geology specimens from Crystal World.
It’s a nice museum, located in the Museum district. I wasn’t excited by all the coloured lights that changed regularly. It was redesigned on a low budget after decades of neglect . Attendance is about 250,000 people per year. We were looking at options of how to use vacant areas within the museum.
这是一个很好的博物馆，位于博物馆区。 我对所有经常变化的彩色灯光并不感到兴奋。 经过数十年的忽视，它在低预算下进行了重新设计。 每年约有250,000人参加。 我们正在寻找如何使用博物馆内空置区域的选项。
