12/15/23 Vicente Guerrero

I’d planned a 25 mile day to Punto Colonet, but the hotel I wanted to stay at on the south end of town was closed. Not finding the town interesting enough to backtrack to I rode another 25 miles to Vicente Guerrero and took the first hotel I came across, which turned out to be quite nice. Traffic picked up considerably after Punto Colonet, so I was glad to be off the road.

All the towns have this look. Business lining the highway that runs through the middle, dirt roads elsewhere

Dino AngeliciWhat do you do to avoid Montezuma's Revenge, when eating in local establishments? Or, is that still a concern when in Mexico?

David ChavezThere’s the occasional place with lots of flies and suspected hygiene, which I’ll avoid, but as a rule the street food places are merely simple, not dirty. I try to pick places with a crowd, never drink tap water, buy fruit you can peel. I need to eat more vegetables, and am getting tired of eggs

Dino AngeliciThanks David. A fellow I worked with, many years ago, used to say he would order drinks, "sin hielo" (without ice). He said that sometimes, even the clean places made their ice from the tap water and that could get you sick. Enjoying following along with your trip. All the best.
