A few last pictures from Oaxaca , a place that never stops to enchant me.
Good food everywhere










Nothing can enrich a good guacamole like some good Chapulines

La Ventosa - San Cristobal

We are about to be ready to get out of Huatulco as soon as the sun comes out(in 10 month I have never ridden without daylight)
I want to get to La Ventosa as early as possible, before the wind gets to strong. The last time I was there(by car), I've seen a truck being turned over by the wind.
Looking forward to San Cristobal and our favorite taco place there, Cochinita Pibil

Where have you been staying while at Tangolunda Bay? I was there about 16 years ago and we stayed at a Club Med. it has since been updated, upgraded and is now Resort Barcelo. Beautiful beach and very nice pool on that property.

It's a small world we stayed at the same place .
The last time that I was in Tangolunda was back in 1980 , before all the construction screwed up this ones heavenly beach

Damn Julio, seems the closer you get to border the slower you are moving. Not too excited about getting back home I guess. I know the feeling.

Hey Vince , you are so right !! If my boys wouldn't be flying in for Christmas, my bike would be pointed in a different direction !!!
It's a scary feeling , but I know, it's only going to be a short break from our journey . So better hurry up and come down soon before we will be gone again

Thumb San Agustin Etla

One of the places around Oaxaca that I always like to go back to is the Casa de Cultura de San Agustin Etla, an old textil factory transformed into a cultural center . Always something going on there , expositions,workshops,concerts,... and always a never ending source for more pictures


























And more steps

Cool2 San Agustinillo

By now everybody knows that I'm a mountain boy and not to crazy about the beach and hot climate,especially not if wearing all my riding gear . But Luisa loves the beach, so we decided to heat some of Oaxacas beaches . Our first stop would be San Agustinillo. The ride down there , going through San Jose del Pacifico is amazing, it also brought some memories back from the last time I did this road, over 30 years ago .

Here some pics from the sunrise on the beach of San Agustinillo






















The view from our cabaña






And sunset is another incraedible show

Question Almost there....

We are at the waterfalls El Chiflon, close to Comitan. It is hard to get any closer to Guatemala without crossing the border.
Our last night in Mexico...many strange and powerful feelings...
We are both very emotional today,a cocktail of feelings...
We are very thankful and conscious about how lucky we are
I better shut up now

GRACIAS A LA VIDA , QUE ME HA DADO TANTO
