Road trip! Preparing the next roadtrip from Austin to Guadalajara with a side trip to Mexico City.

This is a whirlwind adventure in November, not as slowly as the tortoise prefers to travel, but with time for reflection and meetups with old friends and new discovering new places and faces. Driving in Mexico? Prepare to be surprised y vaya con Dios.

Unfortunately, I will not have time to visit Oaxaca. It’s been six years since I left in November 2013. Thanks to Facebook and Twitter, it’s been easy to stay in contact with some friends, but it’s not the same as connecting face-to-face.

Future Plans – I want to make a return trip in 2020. This is quick in-and-out visit to help a friend move. Purposeful. Mindful. And fun. With more time, I would like to return to Oaxaca and perhaps get a group together to visit artisans and palanqueros and good friends.

Questions

  • What are the places and who are the people to see along the way? Even if we cannot make certain sidetrips on this trip, we can still update the relevant pages with suggestions.
  • What are the most useful apps (weather, music, audio books)?

Essay
I once met a foreign woman in Oaxaca City who bragged that she had traveled to Tlacolula de Matamoros for the local bread. I understood – local bread is special, and when you develop a taste for something special, it makes sense to make a culinary pilgrimage. I am a fan of most things made from wheat and corn and appreciate the diversity. Coming up on my roadtrip to Guadalajara – the opportunity to try the birotes (and later compare them to the bolillos in Mexico City).
