I just came across your thread and am ejoying and looking forward to MORE. Man you are doing this life and it is not doing you! I like your style. I spent 8 years in Oaxaca , Mexico and travelled extensively. I think the mainland Mexico is truly like another country. Much to see and experience and the saying learned there reflects my sentiments.
"Como Mexico no hay dos "( There is not another like Mexico).
Here is another saying from Oaxaca where they make a lot of mescal.
Para toto mal mescal---para toto bien tambien (when everythings bad mescal and when everythings good as well,mescal)
Also enjoy the many beers of Mexico. Mostly 4.5 to 5 % not like the piss served in the states.
Buen Viaje y uno moto abrazo,
