carol :: mexico

first stop of my Central America trip - Mexico
Since I don't know how to speak Spanish, I joined a local tour going around Mexico City, Taxco, Acapulco, Playa Azul, Puerto Vallarta, Guadalajara, Guanajuato, & San Miguel de Allende. 
After these first two weeks, I then started my own little explore along the copper canyan railway where I tried horseback-riding into the canyon (Posada Barrancas), visited caves villages, as well as spending days in different villages where no one else spoke English...  which was very exciting & funny...  then taking the night boat to La Paz, & found my way to Oaxaca before starting my 2nd tour to explore Mayan culture in the Yucatan Peninsula.
All-in-all, I truly enjoyed my one month in Mexico, the varieties of culture & history,  the amazing ruins, & all the tasty food/tequilas I've had throughout my trip...

i had to skip lunch on the first day arriving at this little colonial town in order to maximize my time spending in this wonderful place... though i totally missed my chance to shop in this ever-famous silver-mining town, i'm glad i was able to explore much of this place afterall...
