the colors of the Southwest

there's not much to the "city" of Tucson - but some sections are wonderful, especially the Barrio, and the revitalized Placido.    Unfortunately, many of the offices/shops are empty.  But the colors are joyful and exciting and shout Southwest

a wonderful mural at the famous "wishing shrine" in the Barrio.  it tells the story of a love triangle gone bad.
  The murdered boyfriend is the "saint"  of this popular shrine,   (note his skeleton in to mural)  He is said to be responsible for fulfilling many wishes.
