I've been in Mexico for 40 days and done exactly 4014 miles from border of United States to border of Belize. I got there on April 2nd and crossed the Belize border on May 22nd. During this period, I've spent 10 days in Cuba, which will be my next post here. Initially, I was gonna be in Mexico for two weeks, but there was too much to see and do and I didn't want to rush it. Even these 40 days were pretty short, but enough for Mexico to leave a great impression on me.
I didn't have any mayor issues with motorcycle nor accidents riding through Mexico. Existing clutch cable shredded on my way to San Cristobal, but luckily I had a spare on me so it was an easy fix. Everything else was just maintenance stuff. I went through 8 military check points, and none of them asked me for any documents. Few times they just asked me some basic questions and let me pass with a smile and "Buen viaje".
Mexico changed the way I look on certain things and for that I'm very grateful. For me, the whole point of traveling is to learn new things and gain new perspectives, and based on that Mexico was great success. Mexico, you've been great and I can only hope that all the countries on this trip will be me the same. Hasta luego!
I've spent 4 days in this colonial town full of life and some great architecture, local arts and music. It's also known for great food. Aside from lot of well known Mexican dishes like tacos, empanadas, burritos, quesadillas and others, Oaxaca is well know for their tlayudas. Highly recommend this delicious, crispy dish if you have a chance.
