Jalpan de Serra

Starting out from SLP we had our first rain in weeks, but it was very short lived. (read rain suits on then off). Daniel found us a nice secondary road to get us from the city and out into the country towards Rio Verde. Then we had 100 km of steep windy mountain roads to Jalpan de Serra.

The locals are driving 80 km in a 40 and passing on the corners. You know there is good motorcycling here when you arrive at your hotel and there are a bunch of bikes parked out front.

This is a quaint mountain town situated around one of the five 350 year old Franciscan Monasteries located in this area.

We had a quiet garden in our hotel where we could enjoy a drink.

We travelled east to the Valee de Tilaca with the amazing view of the valley from the top of the pass. Here we visited the San Francisco monastery.
