Dave and Jan's travels:
Pancho Villa statue, Zacatecas

Pancho Villa, hero of the Spanish revolution. The reality of this guy is that he was a murdering small-time bandit who happened to be in the right place at the right time for his particular stock in trade, and then he got some rather fortuitous PR. Still, he certainly seems to have been quite the master tactician, and has a reputation for boisterous fun.
