This fountain in Monterrey, Mexico, has both animals AND people.

The Fuente de la Vida (Fountain of Life), by the Spanish sculptor Luis Sanguino, is in the Gran Plaza of Monterrey, Mexico. It was erected in December 1984 and contains figures of Neptune, lions and other animals, in addition to these aquatic horses and women.

Don't they look joyous? I wonder what they're celebrating?

  2. huge too .) being a spring chicken is overrated, when I was 28 and enrolled in a postgraduate programme I remember being asked by a young man whether I didn’t wish I was still younger, I said why? He said, well you know how your body changes when you get older, I wish I was still younger…. stuck with me…all these years later.. I didn’t feel old at 28.

      • Hi Kaz – funny that – I do wonder what became of him, now you mention it, odd eh? That way madness lies. I quite liked being 42, dont anticipate time post 50 will bring much joy… But oh well beats the alternative I guess! Happy monday Poli
