Tuesday afternoon, Marni and I took a boat tour on the Papaloapan River. Tlacotalpan sits on the banks of this large river,as it meanders on its way to the Gulf of Mexico, at Alvardo, Veracruz. This river, in the old days, before the railroads came to Mexico, was a major deep water port for large sea-going vessels. They would come up the river to Tlacotalpan and load their cargo of sugar cane, cotton and cocoa, that was exported to Europe, The Caribbean and The United States.
