My brother A needed a ride back to my parent’s hometown from the city where he was so I took my Mom’s car, went and picked him up. I love driving, and roadtrips are a lot of fun. Besides, my eldest brother and I are really very good friends, so it’s always a treat to hang out with him. Unfortunately, Mom had to teach so I went there on my own. Not a bad drive, 3 hours. Normally it would take me 2 but the road was horrible. URGH.
Passed through the city of Ojuelos, in the state of Jalisco (I crossed four states in this trip!). I’ve always loved this construction so I had a chance to take a photo (and I’m surprised at how nice it turned out!).
Lunch was a “full meal” (comida corrida) with soup, the main dish and dessert (banana with sweet cream and sugar). Very inexpensive (the full meal was $35 Mexican pesos).
I was pretty lucky because drivers in SLP are incredibly aggressive, and I had to face some really bad drivers on the road too. And I thought Vancouver drivers were awful!
