I call again my cousin and he says they are still about 1.5 hr far from Cd. Valles, one bike had a flat tire and they are on it.

damn! I'm starving so I ask my son if he wants to wait for the others or get some food.

He's hungry as well, so we go for some quick lunch, at the corner, right out of the hotel.

TORTAS !! MMM!

Arturo gets TORTA DE CHORIZO CON QUESO,

I get TORTA DE PIERNA

It has been about 1 hr more or less since my last call, so I think the bunch is about to arrive. So we sit at the sidewalk tables.

Arturo gets his TORTA,
and in a blink of an eye, the half is gone!!


I get mine with everything, tomato, letucce, onion, cheese, you name it.


I'm about to finish mine, when Arturo is now on for his 2nd...! I think this kid will broke our meals budget...




He was finishing when he says, there! there they coming!!!

the rest arrives while I'm finishing my torta

I jump to the middle of the street to point out to them the hotel

we get back to the hotel, they all are as well suffering from the weather.

They want some seafood, beer and get into the pool.

While they unpack and get their rooms I take some pics before go out for more food.

Friday morning, Mexico 1 - 1 Southafrica.

OK, lets ride then.

We get ready to go this day to PUENTE DE DIOS and then CASCADA TAMUL.

here at the detour to Tamasopo town, waiting the others behind








as soon as we find a good place to park, under good shadow and stuff taken care by house owner, all is taking gear off and ready for a walk and a river dive and swim.




Today the God's Bridge (Puente de Dios) is in perfect weather conditions to enjoy it. The last time we were here, the current was too strong and the cave was flooded, no way to get in, not even on the edges of the river.







from where I'm standing taking this picture, right underneath is the cave or Puente de Dios, the water made a perforation on the rocks and passed thru under to continue the normal flow. On heavy rainy season, the water flows over where I'm standing..!!








the cave or bridge entrance is right on the back of these two riders (Sergio and Jorge), is real tiny to see it clear. the deep here is about 40 ft.



This is the other side of the Bridge, once is comming out from under the rocks. the deep here is about 20 feet.








on this pic you can see the river continues down there


next post will put some diving videos on this place.

After a couple hours playing on the water, we decided to ride to Tamul Waterfall,

but before, we need to walk back to the bikes and the climb uphill is hard with the high humidity, but our faces still grining after all.

Location of Puente de Dios



a look of the track of the train that runs from SLP to Tampico


getting gear on, but all opted to ride on shorts, at least arturo and me had knee guards





a group pic




lunch time


I found my perfect hat !!


on the way to CASCADA DE TAMUL, some dirt! good!!













the road ends here, and need to leave the bikes and walk around 1 KM to the waterfall along the GALLINAS RIVER.
20 pesos the entrance, including taking care of the bikes and gear.

Tamul Waterfall

The Tamul Waterfall is the most important and impressive waterfall of San Luis Potosi state, with its 300ft height, formed by Gallinas River, falls over the Santa Maria River, and then forming the TAMPAON River. Is only at 30 miles from Cd. Valles.
On the Santamaria River you can practice Kayak, and rafting activities. On dry season can do rappel right along the waterfall wall.
