Going for a swim the next morning
And I found a fisherman and his catch on the beach

Puerto Angel

There is this little town about 30 miles south of Puerto Escondido Mexico call Puerto Angel. A friend of mine has a place there. He told me about a year ago if I ever made it down that way, I would have a place to stay.
So my GF QHFAN2 needed a break from work so she flew in to Huatalco and I picked her up on the GS and we are staying a week in paradise!

Puerto Angel

The town is really cool
There are al kinds of restaurants on the beach and no one is here.
Too many stories of banditos and drug cartel violence I guess has scared everyone away expect for a few brave souls that know better and some neo-hippies that look like hippies from the 70's
Here's QHFAN2 and I eating dinner on the beach at sunset. and the food was awesome!!!!

Here in Puerto Angel you can dinner for 2 for less than $4
That is some good tacos off the many carts in town
Or since we have a kitchen, we went to the meat market (carneceria) ad bought some filet mignon. We had to buy the whole roast tenderlion. It was about 2 kilos (4 pounds) and it cost $16. We BBQ it up and it was one of the best steaks I have ever had.......And I am a steak snob like I am a wine snob

Since I learned all about Tequila a few days earlier, I thought we would have a little tequila taste-off
The Cava de Oro Extra Anejo was the clear winner here

AWESOME VIDEO......click on it to watch

Click on the video below
This little trail is in a national park just outside of Durango Mexico
The start is were I camped for the night
As you can see, the edge of of the trail is a 1000 foot cliff
There was a tree that fell across the trail. I moved it and pushed it off the cliff. It free fell for about 5 seconds before it made a sound. If I would have went off the cliff, nobody would have ever found me

You meet the nicest people on a Italika

After thousands of miles on my GS, some of my scariest moments in Mexico have come on this Italica 150 scooter.
It seems to have a mind of its own
It is a scooter made Mexico and it a piece of junk
But it is also a blast to ride
every time a take it out it is a race with every other scooter owner on the road
My next trip RTW will be on a Italica for sure
The Gs just makes it too easy
