[chuck] in Hotei, Other, Selva Maya

This somewhat battered, styrofoam Hotei Buddha was seen sitting out in the middle of an agricultural field while driving to Felipe Carrillo Puerto in Quintana Roo, Mexico.  I later got the story that villagers from a nearby community had carved it for their carnival day the year before, and then Hurricane Dean (see Selva Maya Interrupted) blew it into the field.  And there it sat. Smiling. May all beings be happy.
