Leaving Uruapan we headed to Moreila then towards Toluca, we managed to get completely lost trying to get out of Moreila .... as did a Canadian who was equally and directionally challenged as we were.
We figured it out after cooling down with a cold coffee and some lunch, the road to Zitacuaro were we stayed was outstanding and a sport bikers dream climbing to 2900 metres
Arrriving at Zitacuaro we decided to call it a day there as I was getting tired again (I must be gettin old).
Finding a Hotel was a mission, some were very pricey and others were ... very cheap, wanting something a little more than dodgy and not quite 5 star we ended up and Hotel Mexico on the main drag, very nice place and reasonable rates too, right in the hub of town with a huge food selection.
We stayed in Hotel Mexico, probably one of the nicest places we have stayed and very reasonably priced to, come highly recommended to a tired RTWer.
Once settled in a dealt to Maya's bleeding fork leg after some great advice from over on the OC.
We tried to get a film to do the job however the photo shops were shut so we cut up a plastic drink bottle which worked a real treat.
While performing the delicate operation in the parking lot of the Hotel we gained a small crowd who had taken interest ... so a photo was in order
To keep Maya company they bought along a child to chat with
A short walk around town after the repairs were done we saw all sorts of things, I seemed to be of interest being pretty much the only blonde head in town
Ballons and goodies for sale, seems to be the norm for a lot of these town
VW vans are everywhere, they are used as Taxis.
A good sleep and wee were off to Mexico city to meet Gary and Ivonne
