León

From Aguascalientes we made our way to León, and after about an hour of waiting for a ride and slowly hitching to the edge of Aguascalientes, a man gave us a ride to León itself. The road was long and full of chatter, and through a series of swapped stories we eventually made it. But … More León

Aguascalientes

After an adventurefull day and and Oscar filled night (yes, we watched the Oscars in our hostel, we were rooting heavily for Alfonso Quarón and tweeting about it!), we woke late in the morning ready to take on the next city.

Morelia

From Toluca we took a bus to Morelia, which is famous for it’s churches, cathedral, and cobblestoned streets in downtown, all of them well kept, beautiful, tall, and gorgeously lit up at night. Also, José María Morelos was born and lived here. As our third destination this place is quite dreamy: no rushing, little traffic, … More Morelia
