Looks like you've got Trice beat in the luggage department...by about 3 lbs. or so.

Mostly protecting the native parrot species. Knows the Biosfera like the back of his hand. A venture through this area could well begin with a map and Jose Luis to mark it up for us.

And I agree with Sjoerd in that there's no reason to avoid Cd. Vic.

Tolatongo report

There are 2 access routes down into the canyon. Gloria's and Grutas , we choose the right hand( straight) route into Grutas de Tolatongo and it was great.
When you go swim in the caves, there is a small opening that leads to a larger cave in further. The current is strong but there is a rope to help you along.Once inside its like " Indiana Jones "!
Very nice place to spend 24 hours, camping, swimming, relaxing.

You can walk from the Grutas to the Gloria's side by footpath. You will need to pay for the other entrance fee of $70peso.
Today we took a backroad route from Actipan to Pachuca via Fray Francisco. It was some great twisty pavement, with a bit of dirt riding from San Jeronimo on down.

Sooooo, answer me a little question, if you don't mind, and I'll explain later.
Does the passport card number match your passport number or is it different??
Inquiring minds and all that shtuff.

My passport runs out in a week. So I just got the passport card to replace it. I am unlikely to be flying anywhere.
