Chiapas, south of Mexico

We had a fantastic trip through the mountains on our way from Palenque to San Cristobal. When we started at 7am it was already pretty hot. But coming closer to San Cristobal the high altitude worked for us.



On the way to Aqua Azul. An early morning start is worth for the fantastic views in the mountains.



The Agua Azul water falls on the way from Palenque to San Cristobal. In the rainy season the water is muddy and far away from being clear and blue.

San Cristobal de las Casas: The Hotel "Fray Bartolome" is affordable and we liked the style of the courtyard a lot.

Thatīs all pics for now. Heading north towards Puebla....

San Cristobal y Puebla, Mexico

San Cristobal de las Casas, an quaint, colonial-style little town. Itīs just nice strolling around and enjoying the brightness of the city.




The way through the mountains from Cosamaloapan to Oaxaca.




Just arrived in Puebla!




There is so much to see in Puebla...




Our hotel in Puebla - stunning at night. We just loved sitting at the fountain in the main hall.

Well, well, well, no idea what to answer now. We had fog and lots of clouds at the top, so donīt want to bore you with that....

Nice company in Puebla

Here we are, in Puebla. We met the ADVrider Stefan and Mary Carmen, Enrique and Edna, who took care of us, we can tell. All of you were such a nice company for us. We already miss you guys! You made us feel great and we had a very nice stay in your home town. And here again a big promise: The 5 kg Swiss chocolate will be sent out to you as soon as we get back into Switzerland.





Sightseeing trip in Puebla. Thanks Enrique, you should rather work as a tour guide than for the car industry. You have a tremendous knowledge about history and architecture. Highly appreciated!





Enrique took us for a trip through the mountains around Puebla. He is such a good motorbiker! Pointing at every single pot-hole and speed-bump made the ride a real pleasure. The juice of the Agave plant is used for the production of Tequila.




50 km away from Puebla we stopped at this quiet place for a break.




Yummy!




For the sweet tooth - selection of desserts. It was always Ingo and Mary Carmen who couldnīt say "no".




To cut the tortilla the waitress recommended the use of scissors instead of a knife.




Our current position: The pyramides of the sun and the moon in Teotihuacan, close to Mexico City.

Greetings from Puebla

Hi Claudia, hi Ingo,
It was great of you two to have accepted our invitation to get together for dinner and a couple of .
Too bad I didn't get a chance to go riding with you and Enrique, but somebody has got to work!
Had I known that you were so fond for chapulines I would have chosen another restaurant. Or was that chalupas you liked so much? I'm confused!
I will be following your trip and I do hope we will meet sometime again.
And thanks to Julio, whose network seems to be working just fine, I have made two more friends!
Keep enjoying your trip!
Stefan

Our way to Real de Catorce

We didnīt stop in Mexico-City, but close by there was a place called Teotihuacan. The pyramids of the moon and the sun are famous and worth a visit.






On our way to Real de Catorce





The way to Real de Catorce is cobble stone pavement. With fantastic scenery....









This tunnel is the only way to get in and out of the village.





Our Hotel "El Angel y El Corazon" in Real de Catorce. It was a little tricky to get the bikes in but at the end it worked out well.




The hike to "Cerro del Quemado", we canīt point out enough, how great that was. With an early morning start we had fantastic light and views.







Thantīs all for today.
Claudia and Ingo

Up to Hidalgo del Parral, Mexico

There are a few nice stops on the way up north. Parras de la Fuente and Hidalgo del Parral. Itīs pretty warm down here and we look forward getting back into the mountains. In Guachochi and Creel we stay at around 2300 m, so temperatures are much more bearable. The "Barrancas del Cobre" the Copper Canyon is definitely worth a ride as well as the Canyon Sinforosa. There are more pictures to come soon.....

Barrancas del Cobre

Going all the way up to Creel is a worthwile ride. No traffic, stunning landscape with wonderful rock formations. From Guachochi it takes approyimately 3-4 hours, depending on the length of the several stopps at the side of the road.
