Great fotos Bill.
I enjoyed the Libertad beer I had in GTO.
I saw that one but went for something else.
Tried this one a few hours ago.
Went up to El Pipila tonight.
Took the funicular up & walked the paths down. Downtown was hoping again tonight, but Friday was busier.
Thanks, we are having fun being back in GTO. Love this place! Just missed JD @SkizzMan
He went back to TX before we arrived.
We are hear till Friday & then we fly to Cancun.
Acapulco has banned horse drawn carriages due to animal abuse. Now the carriages are pulled by quads.
I enjoy traveling by ETN 2 story busses. However I would always set a bit behind the front wheels because there is less movement there.
If you can get a senior citizen card (inapam) you can ride for half price.
Interesting "take" on buses in Mexico. I rode the bus RT from Toluca to the subway in CDF, none except that though.
Here in the USA, for inter-city travel, they have long become the means to get there for the poor and the few old farts like me who don't care about appearances. Two years ago I went to a car dealer to pick up my new SUV via bus and can say that I didn't see mainstream USA in any bus terminals, mostly people of color ride them-and drive them. In Europe they are less seen as a lower class option and I've used them a lot there.
Busses often make more sense than trains.
Is the Mexican government using bribes to get people vaccinated? Here in KY I read today that 5 nearby counties are offering $100 gift card to get the free shot. And of course we have a $100 million vaccination lottery too.
The last few months it has been hovering around 60 pesos a kilo.
Unfortunately, many people here would pay $100 to be able to get a vaccine.
I was wondering why they all used those stupid ATVs.
A beer in a man bar...

I read that now there so much big money in exporting Avocado’s to the US from Mexico that the Cartels are
Taking over some of the orchards.
Global vaccination chart daily in NYT's-it lists each country by %. Mexico now shows as 20% one shot/12% two shots. Africa is far behind the developed countries as is much of Asia.
Fruit- I have wondered why Mexico hasn't taken some of the slack in citrus? In the USA groves have turned into suburbs or sit untended in FL. I think Brazil grows much of the US juice.
FWIW, I buy the Modelo negra at Walmart.
Now that you mention Mexican orange growing , it prompted me to do a bit of research because I always have had an inkling that Mexico did a good bit of fruit juice exporting to the US. The reason I thought so was because over the years traveling the Mex 180 and 85 regularly I spied big rig stainless steel tanker trucks with Florida plates and of Major tank truck companies showing placards for “ Food Grade “ and obviously loaded heading NORTH through Veracruz and Tamaulipas .So with a bit of snooping it brought up this interesting table which suggests that Mexico is the leader of sending o.j. into the States and Canada .
There are lots more sources of info I got just by googling “ USA orange juice ,import, sources “
When you buy “ Florida Grade Orange Juice “ it will be up to standards set by the FL rules but it can be a blend from US and imported sources.
All of it is good stuff . Yummmmmmm.
Funny thing about the table of US imports of OJ is that it lists CANADA as a source of 12000 tones of OJ . Since I’m not familiar with citrus groves in Canada I suspect they are channeling
imports from tropical countries to the US.
Google just told me that Mexico's OJ taking the place of Brazil is a recent thing. Brazil maybe still is the world leader?
The recent meat packer JB's cybertheft debacle, I noticed that Argentina had one plant. SA beef was always trying to find ways into the USA years past. When I worked in meat packing in the 1960's we used a lot of Mexican beef at our plant in KS. Now, I have no idea?
