Zacatecas At Random

Some random shots from Zacatecas. For a really great set that captures the feeling of the city, look at kennyanc's ride report.

The three shops that sell local "wine":

Best-named store EVER. "Oh you sexy little frog...":

Worst-named store EVER:

The crazy shop that managed to drill out the sheared stainless bolt in my subframe (for $5). I must find grade-8 tempered steel replacement bolts; this cannot keep happening.

A couple from SF arrived in Zacatecas on a KLR and a DR650. This was the second set of riders I met at the hostel:

There's something funny about a big impressive ornate church marred by ugly mismatched CF bulbs. I may be the only tourist who didn't take a picture of the cathedral facade in Zacatecas.

One roof from the ruined convent, now turned into a museum:

Random shot of my bike and a fountain:

We got some serious rain, lightning, and thunder one afternoon:

More food porn. Enchiladas at a secretive restaurant whose name I forget; there isn't much of a sign and you have to ring the doorbell. There was a person playing the piano inside the small space and cute little birds were flying around the foyer to the bathrooms.

You can get a good mocha frappe in Zacatecas:

The closer dish is Asado de Boda, a Zacatecan speciality. It's beef in a mole-ish sauce, super delicious.

Random torta. Actually, the tortas in Zacatecas were disappointing - they're better in other parts of Mexico:

San Francisco to Panama and back... eventually?
