Photographer's Note

Main plaza in Cuautla, a city in the state of Morelos, about 104 km south of Mexico City. In the 2010 census its population was 154 358, being the third most populous city in the small state, after Cuernavaca and Juitepec.
Cuautla was the scene of one of the fiercest battles of the War of Independence during a siege which began on February 19 and ended on May 2, 1812. The city was taken by rebel forces who defended it against the Spaniard general Félix Maria Calleja for weeks before having to retreat.
Cuautla means "where the eagles roam" in Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs.
