A British boxer wins a fight -- then heads to the hospital and dies. Strange.

An update from the inveterate RVers, now traveling with a group in Mexico.  Why should you read this? Because it's looking at Zapotec rugs. The best part: a fascinating side look at how cochineal dye (a vivid red) is produced naturally.  (From Kevin & Ruth)
