Yes This Is Central México

When most people think of México they think of crowded sandy beaches or high desert.  Well there is beautiful forests of tall pine trees here and you should come to visit them.

This road that we ride several times a year reminds us of the wooded forests on the climb up King Ridge in west Sonoma County in California, very beautiful.

Cycling is such a wonderful way to bond with nature.

Preparation is the Key

Last night we made a meal of chicken jalapeno meatballs, lots of vegetables and rice.  The key to a tasty meal is always in the preparation, which just can not be rushed!

Las Tapas de Mercado San Juan

No Comments

There is an excellent deli/tapas restaurant in Mexico City that has locations in the Mercado San Juan, the Mercado Roma and a renovated historical building.  The food was excellent (although there wine selection was very limited).

This photo was from the location in the renovated historical building, although we had eaten at restaurant in the Mercado San Juan earlier in the day.

It Isn’t Suppose To Rain During The Dry Season

No Comments

In the mountains of central México we have two seasons, the dry (runs from mid-November until late May/early June) and then the rainy season.  However last week we had a very strange weather front come visit us.  It started when we were in Morelia on March 11 (about 45 minutes away by car) where we got heavy rains and hail.  Ended up with something that looked like snow. Then starting the following Friday we had three days of heavy rain which dropped almost 17 centimeters of rain which is just unheard of at this time of the year.

But I guess people will still deny that there is climate change afoot.
