A climbing day, but with gentle grades. I’m still recovering my legs after my long break and got tired

I’ve been riding roads like this, two lanes with no shoulder. Not bad when traffic is light

A little tense when it’s not, but drivers have been considerate

I had a jolly lunch at this taco stand in Acámbaro. Jorge, standing with the ladies, was curious about my trip and ended up treating me

Jorge has been to Mississippi and Alabama several times. He said he works long enough to buy a nice motorcycle and then rides it back home. He has four now.

The road into Maravatio was terrible. Rough, full of holes and cars and a nasty wind made for unpleasant riding

I found this modest hotel a few blocks from the center of town. Quiet and cheap

Overflow crowd at mass tonight. Something special was going on, many women were carrying what I first thought were young babies but were in fact dolls. I didn’t ask
