We found this restaurant in Linares on our last night in Mexico for our obligatory cabrito dinner. They had to send out for our cervezas micheladas. From here we rode home by way of Montemorelos, China, Reynosa, McAllen and Corpus Christi. Four days, 1250 miles, about $250 apiece.
We ran into a tour group from MotoDiscovery (based in San Antonio, TX) finishing a 10-day Central Mexico tour. We saw them leaving Xilitla the day before. Nice bunch but since we were riding faster and farther, we didn't stick with them.
Edward James spent 10 years in the 60's and early 70's building surreal sculpture gardens in the jungle just outside Xilitla. Currently owned by his former foreman's family, they're in danger of disappearing. Dali meets Indiana Jones sort of look.
Very nice fountain in the Central Park. Some more local police led us to the Tourist Bureau across the street. We got a map of the area and started figuring out where we wanted to go: a side trip south of Ciudad Valles, spend the night in Xilitla, see Las Pozas de Edward James.
