Time to watch The Mexican again so I can pick out some of Real de Catorce featured in that film. Soon I'll be on El Real's

I've got another secret...will disclose in a few more months

..... and for Nueva Alemania location draw a line verticaly through the stem and the dot of the lettir " i " in the red" Mexico" then intersect it with a horizontal line drawn west out of the red dot for Volcan Tacana . Neat pavement route all the way to Nva A. ... and beyond to Motozintla it is ??? but a bazillion curves on the map. Having done the DGO to MAZ rally this should be easy for you Trice.
( the dot for Cacahoatan is actually in the wrong spot, it should be almost touching the Mex200 marker , very close to the Talisman border crossing, picky picky , picky ... and Union Juarez is only meters from the GT border., but,hey, close enough =) )

As you can see, the dots are all in front of the applicable town names

They are not there to point out the precise location of the town

The addition of both maps to your post helps visualize where things are in the grand scheme of things
