Some days of blissful riding…

September 5, 2010

Always taking the path less traveled, no matter what...

If we stopped to stay with everyone who offered us up their homes, we'd have to renew our Mexico visa several times over. Here is Kurt with Francisco and his family, Victoria, Poncho, Edmond and Sumeria. They approached us while we ate lunch next to a church and invited us to come "take a rest, have a shower, and have some food", the common offerings. We declined, as it was only midday and we wanted to cover more ground, but we did take them up on their offer of purified water they kept in the garfon in their living room...

Holy frijoles!...

We spent the next few days wrapping our heads around where all of those beans actually come from...

Bedding down in the corn field...

This was some great riding. Often our map is wrong and local directions prove to be extremely unreliable at times. This particular late afternoon we rode along some plots of farmland for a while, mostly on tractor roads, heading in the south-easternly direction we wanted...

...until we hit a wall and had to source out our next direction from the height of the rubble...
