She just wants to be ridden. JimMex might recognize the view, Xoxocotla in the "sierra fria" from the little mirador that Frank and I stopped at yesterday after a breakfast of picadas with big tortillas that had frijolitos mixed in. Those cost 60 cents a piece, breakfast for two with cokes and tip was 3 bucks. Andres and Arte are going to love this area, take a look at all the brechas that branch off from the church and the palacio municipal. Beyond the horizon is Tehuacan, behind us and over the other sierra is the Zongolica. She's called Xoxocotla and worth a visit and it's only the half way point.

I think I recognize the mirador but after hearing about the voluptuous Mexicana it seems rather umimportant.

The mountains are merely a metaphor.

Once at the Colombia bridge in Laredo I took the libre to Anahuac instead of the cuota to Monterrey. You hook a right at the Pemex instead of Left to Monterrey just past the Colombia bridge.

About an hour or so later I found a sign that was marked Monterrey. Unfortunately, the bolt in the left post of the sign had fallen out and so the left side of the sign had fallen and the arrow to Monterrey was pointing straight up to heaven. An epiphany.

However, that did not make much sense to me because I figured Monterrey was to the South (Left) and not to the Right (North) so I got off my bike and sat around for a while there thinking about this.

After a while some guy comes along herding goats and I ask him which way to Monterrey. He said that he did not know for sure because he has never left his pueblo but he thought that maybe I should follow the trucks since there were no big cities to the North.

While I was thinking about this, along comes a doble remolque. There I go, and he was right. Why did I not think of that?

Your lack of experience as a Mexican goat herder?

Now if only that cow was singing The Lemon Song then you'd really have something there.

Hmmm.... I'm wondering if she's one of them there dairy farmer Menonitas from Chihuahua.

I like it how the Mexicanas even get dressed up to milk the cows.

Felt it over here on the other coast.
My pool overflowed from the shaking. It was a good one!

The Associated Press reports that the quake's epicenter was in Guerrero state.

Mike, I'm not a geologist, but that's impressive that you felt the quake over there when the epicenter was on the other sido of Mexico
