Julio,

I think you'll enjoy this guys observations about Lake
Atitilan. See post #96.

Sort of a reverse experience of when you visited Crater Lake. His riding partner is riding my old KTM 690. Small world indeed!

Too bad , would have been great meeting you . Mil Cumbres is one of my favorite routes in Mexico, I have it done twice and I will definitely do it again.

Morelia, towers and art

Morelia keeps on fascinating me , it's so full of history and of life at the same time . The combination between yesterday and today is always present, on the streets and plazas , in the cultural events and in some of the high end restaurants as well.

I definitely think a trip back is in the cards, especially now I hear more of your prowess in the kitchen! If not Guatemala, you should come to Tassie. A foodies paradise! Enjoy the road.
Or Julio could come back up to Seattle sometime after you come back here

There are so many reasons for not leaving Morelia...some I mentioned already...here are a few more

The breakfasts...







Or having a friend getting up early just to prepare you a great breakfast Venezolano , arepas















Or getting the chance to cook for friends











The only downside...the salmon was not from Alaska .....There is no other salmon in this world like fresh Alaskan salmon

Zombie Parade

In Morelia they have this strange and new custom of having a Zombie Parade the day before the 20 de Noviembre , the Revolution day. Nobody could tell me why or how it started, but it is quiet a big event...


























A brave photographer in middle of all the Zombie madness







The Zombie boss was motorized

Interesting , so it seems to be just another one of those new import products from the US

Well, I figure after all the help that you arranged for Hewby, it's the least I can do to repay the favor at a future time of your choosing

Thanks Marcin, but there is no need to repay anything . It's the other way round, I'm repaying some of all the god and help that we received over the last 9 month on our journey. People have just been incredible with us and made our journey so much better .

The world would be such a better place if everybody would just behave like the AdvRider community does !!

But if we ever come back to Seattle we will definitely look you guys up and hopefully get some cooking going
