Guanajuato – Angangueo
Moving Time= 6:06
Stopped Time= 1:56
Leaving Guanajuato was easier than I expected: I took the tunnel in front of the hotel / shopping arcade / bus station place where I stayed last night, and road right out of the city on Route 110. The same route 110 to Leon. The same Route 110 also marked to go to Irapuato. All different directions. Funny how that works in Mexico. 🙂
Turns out Irapuato is the strawberry region, and everyone is advertising Strawberries & Cream.
Not yet having breakfast, I chose fom among the literally hundreds of Fresas con Crema shacks–everything from people selling out of pickup beds, to pilapas, to brick structures–and chose the fairest of them all.
And for 20 Pesos ($1.53)…BreAKFAST!
Then I rode through some nice
And some not-so-nice
Love the desviaciones! (It always spells bumps!)
Oops! Wrong turn had me on my motorcycle in the middle of the market (a somewhat frequent occurrence for me!)
Back down the right street
So THAT was the big blob of blue on my GPS
I was wondering how to cross that, since the GPS showed no road…
Then some GREAT riding
Up into the mystical magical mountains
Holy carumba, HUGE old forests (COLD!)
And finally into Angangueo
Where I stop for the night.
Why this frigid little mountain town so far off the beaten path?
