Guadalajara – Tepatitlan – San Andres Cohamiata – San Jose – San Blas
Longs walks, Morelia’s Hilton cantina beer sessions, sunbathing, Mexican blues and having some Pulque de Reyes were some of the things we did while spending a few days in Guadalajara. First Sunday we hit the road 100 km north to Tepatitalan. There we visited Ene, a friend and artist who has transformed his old family Hacienda into an art studio space.
Our main travel mission started on Wednesday morning. Alex and Yigo joined us for the trip north. We drove the free road, direction Zacatecas, heading up to the mountain range of Sierra Madre Occidental. Rain-less landscapes, deep house, and experimental electronic music mixed with mystical cactus and Mountain Scenery. After a 10-hour drive, we got to Huejuquilla the last town before entering the Sierra Madre – the land of the Wixárikas.
