Volunteering at the Cumbre Tajin Festival, Mexico: Tool by Night, Traditional Pottery by Day (photos)

Thanks a lot to the Yucatan Times for publishing my story about volunteering for Cumbre Tajin.

Besides seeing a lot of great music: Tool, Primus, Jack Johnson, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Puscifer, Illya Kuryaki and the Valderamas, Babasonicos, Jenny and the Mexicats, Banda el Recodo – I worked as a volunteer in the traditional pottery cabin, spending all day with my new Totonaca friends.
