Great report. It is such a pleasure to follow along and see all the sights through the eyes of a good photographer. Ride safe.

Excellent David. While you are in that part of Mexico you may want to make your way to Real de Catorce for a different experience (definitely not a big city) and some interesting riding.



Also, Xilitla y Las Pozas, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xilitla...is_Potos%C3%AD http://www.xilitla.org, would probably appeal to you on an artistic level, plus the riding is excellent (lots of curves).




Enjoy yourself.

Bien viaje.

Photos and Travel Tips

GSteve,

Thanks for the tips and photos. The resolution on your pix is extraordinarily good. What are you shooting with? Those look like great places and they will definitely go on the list!

David, the photos from Real de Catorce were taken with a Canon point-n-shoot and those from Las Pozas were taken with an old Canon 20D.

Enjoy your trip and give my regards to Alberto if you see him again.

David,

The other cool bit about the ride to Real De Catorce is the ride through the tunnel to get to the town.

good stuff RMO.

Keep up the good work.

Don't let the inmates from IMS lead you astray.

There is no "astray" in Mexico. LOL!
There is amiss and askew, but astray? Ya no hay.

Thieves

I posted this on the IMS thread but neglected to post it here on my RR for those of you who are not following IMS. I wanted to share it here and also to tell you that numerous readers of the IMS thread have offered to take up a collection for Dona Sara to replace the stolen money. I don't particularly like using this overused word but in this case it applies AWESOME! Guys.

Thieves-Ladrones
It can happen to anyone, anywhere at any time on this continent. My sweet, dear, Spanish teacher Sara was robbed by two young men yesterday evening around 7:30 as she walked homeward not too far from the school. These two twentysomethings pushed her into a doorway and rifled her bag to find her small pocketbook (bolsillo) that contained 3000 pesos, around $244, that she had just picked up from Western Union. One of her relatives had wired the money from the states to pay for her mother's heart and diabetes meds. The little bastards may have seen her come out of the Western Union office and followed here until they were able to seize the opportunity to mug her. San Miguel is very safe but like anywhere in the world one needs to be aware of what is going on around you. She was walking home, deep in thought, and as a native who feels quite secure was in her own world until these little pricks entered it. The street parallels one of the nicer private neighborhoods in that quarter of the city. Damn shame. This is a lot of money to her. I would still say that Mexico is safe, not much you can do about walking around a corner and finding hoodlums in wait even in Peoria.

GSteve: I will probably see him this evening at the MotoClub meeting at the Longhorn. Does he know you as GSteve?

Probably not, but may remember me a Steve, one of the Ripio Rangers.
