From Oaxaca to Tonalá, Mexico

Hello Friends,

Oaxaca is an amazing place!

Oaxaca came highly recommended by friends who know Mexico, and now I know why. I can only speak for the old part of town where I stayed and walked around extensively. It’s a city rich with art and history having a continuous high level of energy and with a considerable police presence, the city feels extremely safe. The several great restaurants, cafes, outdoor markets, and art shops combined with being a relatively inexpensive place to stay compared to Monterrey and Mexico as it a great choice to vacation for local citizens.

After solving a few technical GPS programming and directing issues, I eventually made it out of the city. While riding away, I saw how the city tucked in tightly between the mountains. For at least an hour and a half, I rode twisties again. Up and down mountains and passing the occasional villages along the way.

Arriving in Tonalá. I selected this city because it close to the border.The hotel was old but clean, and they had security guards watching the parking lot and hotel at all hours.

I went to an outdoor restaurant a few blocks away for my supper. After the meal, I had a nice discussion with the owner. At one point I asked him if the Honduran refugees had travelled through the city on their way to the United States. He said that there is a continuous stream of them coming through, and that last week about 200 walked by like a parade.

Tomorrow I leave Mexico, cross the border, and carry on through Guatemala. I have no idea what to expect, but I’m looking forward to the experience.
