8000December 17, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C
Today, we have been 8000km on the road. Our route went through the centre of Metepec which is a pueblo magico as well. The houses are very colourful and have brickstone gates which looked pretty nice.
We then tried to find a road to Cuernavaca with not too much traffic. Not that easy this close to Mexico City! We were successful at the beginning, but then got on a really busy road. No fun at all!! Luckily, we found some backroads again that led us to state highway 4. This one wasn't too bad. We had to climb up to 3200m - the highest we've been so far WITH luggage.
On the downhill afterwards, we passed some lagunes (quite dirty though) and stopped for some bananas. We must have looked very hungry as the owner just gave me an additional 3 bananas for free. Rolling down into Cuernavaca was pretty fast as the roads were quite steep. But we arrived safely at Fleming's, our Danish host for the night who cooked some delicious pasta for us.Read more
