..the road to Mexico City

We have arrived in Mexico City after passing some of the best colonial citys and towns we have seen on our travels anywhere. The riding has been mixed, some lovely days riding through the countryside and some that felt we were riding into London on the M4!  Guanajuato, San Miguel de Allende and Queretaro each had their own charms and wonderful cobbled back streets to explore. For our last part into Mexico city we managed to cram five bikes onto the bus and miss the busy section, we then had good fun winding our way into the centro district taking all the little streets to avoid the traffic.

Government building Aguascalientes.

We ended up taking over the Hostel Posada in Aguascalientes! It was a great place to stay and lovely owners.

Guanajuato.

We had a really lovely couple of days in Guanajuato, just wandering around, it was very busy for the New Year but think that added to the charm of the place.

New Year, Russ and Jules laughing at the rest of us dancing.

I liked the little wicker bicycle.

New years day and a needed coffee!

Most main roads of Guanajuato run under the city, it was cool cycling through the cobbled tunnels and popping out in the centre of town.

Back on the road again after the festivities.

San Miguel de Allende.

Lunch by the lake.

San Juan del Rio, more churches, more buildings!!

Frida Kahlo´s house, Mexico City.  Really enjoyed this it was a great insight into Frida´s life.

Club America v Pachuca at the Aztec Stadium. A really great atmosphere but not such a good game. 2:0 to Pachuca (we were cheering for CA!)
