Las Pozas is near the village of Xilitla, San Luis Potosí, a 7 hour drive N of Mexico City. In the early 1940s, James went to LA, & he "wanted a Garden of Eden set up . . . & I saw that Mexico was far more romantic” and had "far more room than there is in crowded Southern CA.” In Cuernavaca, he hired a guide. They found Xilitla in Nov. 1945. He married a local woman & had 4 children.
