    We could not go there, since we were late the first day.

    We camped right after JACALA, near "Puerto Los Frijoles" then rode by "Apizaco" next day.

    I've been going into Mexico for the last 20 years, usually twice a year, on mission trips to the state of San Luis Potosi. We go about 40 miles south of Valles near a place called Aquismon. It is indeed beautiful and we often have a chance (we call it a play day) when our work is done to visit the local scenery. Tamul, Tomasopa, Xilitla, and Sotanos de los Golondrinas are all within driving distance of where we do our mission work.
    Also been down to Veracruz and on down to Chiapas and into the Central American countries.
    One day, (it's on my bucket list) I'll get to take a ride down into Mexico on a bike instead of a church van, maybe even cutting across the Yucatan to the Caribbean.
    Enjoyed the report and seeing some of the places I have seen and many more I haven't.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Enjoyed those pics immensely. I've never been on top of Tamul before, we always start down river and rent a long boat and paddle up to the falls. In your pics there is a big rock in the river below the falls, that is where we tie up for group shots and usually a snack before heading back down the river (which is much easier). We also stop on the way back to swim in a cenote like cavern that is just a short hike from the river.
    I've seen that restaurant "Curva" before but we have never stopped, I think we will if we ever get a chance to again.
    This is the first year in many that our group has not went to Mexico, the possibility of danger has made the powers that be to just wait and see.
    So in the meantime, planning to go back to Bolivia in February on another mission trip, wish I could bring my bike.

    Is there really a place called "La Chingada"?
    Sure there is a pueblito/rancho called "La Chingada", I've been sent there on business many times.:muutt
    Use my name when you get there. When you arrive, ask for la senora Tuchi!:sweeti

    She has many, many sons, so you are sure to come across at least one of them.:jose:jose:jose:jose:jose

    If you can't find her right away, head to the cantina and ask the biggest guy there where she is.:pot

    Be sure to ask very clearly for "Tuchi" pronounce it like "two-chee", if the person perks right up be sure to quickly inquire as to her state of health. This is considered to be good manners and a very polite thing to do. If at first they just ignore you or seem to get a little angry, just raise your voice louder and try to appear genuinely serious. Sooner or later someone will pay attention to you. If you are still unsuccessful, there is a local secret tradition that is guaranteed to get you in touch with her. Simply pick up the glass of whatever the guy is drinking and pour half of it on your head and the other half on his. This will mean you will be instantly referred to as one of the sons of la senora Tuchi. You'll be considered a true son of Tuchi and will be welcomed warmly and be sure not to deny the other sons of Tuchi their opportunity to give you a warm friendly hug and such.

    Always remember that those rinky dink programs like Rosetta Stone and Berlitz will not teach the things you really need to learn.
