Flamencos Mexicanos 

En la Ria de Celestun, Yucatan. According to the Real Academia these are flamencos, so the next person who says "flamingo music" to you may be a philologist.

Gran Museo del Mundo Maya, Mérida, Yucatan.

Pirámide del Mago, Uxmal, Yucatan

Templo de Santo Domingo, Uayma, Yucatan

RE: Flamencos Mexicanos (in reply to Richard Jernigan

Let's further complicate the issue and suggest that these pink "flamencos" are of Flemish origin, just as one hypothesis has it that the term "flamenco" itself is derived from "flanders"/"Flemish" which at one time was under Spanish control. We would then have "flamenco flamencos." (I know, that's pretty lame, but I couldn't help myself.)


And the end of the fight is a tombstone white,
With the name of the late deceased,
And the epitaph drear, "A fool lies here,
Who tried to hustle the East."

--Rudyard Kipling
