So, Barb and Sal are scheduled to arrive back on Thursday or Friday this week. We'll play it by ear, but we've been invited to visit San Miguel de Allende by a couchsurfer who lives there and they look like really interesting people to visit with so we're thinking of taking them up on their offer. So maybe towards the end of next week we'll take off for a few days and go to San Miguel. We've been there before, but now that we have the little blue car with us, there are a few things in the outlying areas we'd like to see and do.
Then, we'll come back to here to spend Christmas and New Years Eve.
But shortly after January 1st, we're heading further south.
Here's the plan...
(A) Hacienda Contreras. (B) Morelia. (C) Valle de Bravo. (D) Acapulco. (E) Puerto Escondido (F) Guatemala.
We're going to leave Sherman at (A). The savings in gas will be worth it, and we have places to stay all along our route. Won't be quite as convenient not having Sherman with us, but we have a little tent and we're going to do some beach camping!
We've been around the city of (B) Morelia, but never into the city itself. So we want to visit Morelia for a couple of days. There are quite a few couchsurfers listed there so we should have no problem staying with some friends who we haven't met yet!
Then, we're looking forward to seeing all of our friends at (C) Valle de Bravo. We'll probably spend a couple of weeks there, and again we're looking forward to doing a couple of things in the area that will be more convenient with a car.
After that, it will be time for some beach! Looking forward to seeing John at (D) Acapulco Trailer Park for a little bit. We'll be roughing it in a tent while we're there!
And then in between (D) and (E), there's a little beach spot we know of where we'll stop for a couple of nights before heading to (E) Puerto Escondido where we'll spend another couple of weeks.
From there, we're going to play it by ear. If we feel like it, we're going to head for (F) Guatemala! If not, we'll spend a bit more time in Puerto Escondido (it's pretty easy to relax there, and we have friends to visit!) and then head to the city of Oaxaca which is another place in Mexico that we've never been to.
And from there, back to Hacienda Contreras. By then, it should be about the middle of March! So we're going on a two and a half month long road trip! Even though it's still a month before we leave, just writing it all down has us excited about it!
A big ugly spider I saw yesterday. I took this just for you, Lindsey!
