We then visit Toluca on market day, where people sell produce and pottery. The last stop is Taxco, where the Castilian influence of the Spanish conquerors is still prevalent.

Rural Mexico (1935)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

TravelTalks entry takes us to a few small towns in Mexico including Mazatlan where we learn about the various fishing villages, their giant turtles and some coconut trees and how they deliver food and drink to the people (as well as nice shade). In Toluca we go on market day where the Mexican Indians sell their food as well as their famous pottery. Finally we see some pyramids that are still standing and hear how some places have a lack of water. James A. FitzPatrick does his usual nice narration and overall this is yet another pleasant entry in the series. Some of the best moments happen early on in the fishing village as we see one young man climb up a tree, which was fun to watch. Running just under 8-minutes the film does a nice job at teaching us about some forgotten places and that alone makes this worth viewing if you're a fan of the series.
