Day 8 - July 6


SPOT Tracker: http://share.findmespot.com/shared/f...HniLtAIdNJx2vv

These are pictures from the room balcony last night.







MikeMike came over to the hotel and we sat around around a while and got to know each other! And planned today's ride. Well actually, Mike told us where he was going to take us. All sounded like Greek to me, but I knew it would be a great ride as Mike has been down here for 20 years. Later JD and I eat some hot dogs off a cart on the street. They were great!

I am sure that the mountain has a name, but I am tired and I am not going to look it up. If someone else knows, feel free to share it with us!

We will be going out to dinner later with Mike. I want to really thank him for taking the time today to give us a great tour! I know JD feels the same way! And the best part is, Mike is taking us on another Day Ride tomorrow! I can't wait!

The volcano Pico de Orizaba. One of several snow-capped volcanos in México.
We were fortunate to have the clouds part and provide a view of the peak. It can remain obscurred for days at a time.
