Introducing Angahuan

Angahuan, the nearest town to Volcán Paricutín, is a typical Purépecha town: there are wooden houses, dusty streets, more horses than cars, women in ankle-length skirts and colorful shawls, and loudspeakers booming announcements in the Purépecha tongue. Greet locals with ‘nari eransku’ (good morning) or ‘nari chusku’ (good afternoon).
