Bus Trip

We started a bus trip yesterday that we expect to take about 2 weeks. It will take us from La Manzanilla to the Yucatan Peninsula, so we will go from coast to coast.

We left La Manzanilla at 3:30 pm yesterday, and arrived in Puebla at 9:30 am. The bus from Barra de Navidad, a town near La Manzanilla, to Mexico City took 12 hours. I don´t think I can handle more than that, so we will stop every 12 hours at least on our way to the Yucatan.

We are currently in Puebla, Puebla. In a few days we will go to Oaxaca for a few nights, and then on to the Yucatan. We are going to visit many ruins in the Yucatan, Quintana Roo, and Campeche.

On the way back, we are going to stay with our friend´s mother in Mexico City, and she is going to take us to the museums and gardens.

We will return to La Manzanilla two weeks before we leave to Ciudad Juarez for Jose´s next appointment. By then, the weather will be nicer and more people will have arrived.



  1. I'm so glad you have a chance to travel and do some sight seeing. Will you be going to the National Museum in Mexico City? If you are I'd like to commission you to look for something for me there. Love to you both!


  2. We are definitely going to the museum, I have been dreaming about it for 2 years. I am sure there will be something there with your name on it,too.


  3. I once saw a print of a painting they have there. I believe it was called "Figure Radiant With Joy" or it could have been "Man Radiant With Joy". Something like that. If you can figure out any way to get a full sized print of that back to me I'd love it! Not sure if it's possible, though.
