Eviva Mexico? No, no... I'm not in Mexico ! I'm still here in Key West. I captured these wonderful cactus plants in a side street in Key West.
By the way: "Cayo Hueso" is Spanish for "Island of Bones". The history tells, when Ponce de Leon first arrived at Key West, the island was littered with bones from the Indians who had lived here. The term "Key" is most likely an Anglicization of Cayo. It isn't clear if "West" is derived from Hueso (pronounced way-so) or if the term "West" has to do with the geographical location of Key West.
