Decorative Brickwork In Mexico

When it comes to building there are so many things that Mexicans are good at 
and brickwork is one them.

These first 4 photos are from San Carlos, Sonora.

The bricks are typically hand made and are low fired.

To see how bricks are made go to my very first post from February 3rd, 2010:

We were walking down the street in Alamos, Sonora 
when Allison spotted this beautiful vaulted ceiling.

This is a show stopper!

This brick balcony is also in Alamos
 and shows just how varied the use of bricks can be.
