Mexico Quick Updates Travel

+++ an unplanned long stay in Celaya +++

By on Monday February 5th, 2018

Since I left Queretaro pretty late in the day I didn’t cycle too far. My original goal was to reach Celaya but when I arrived in Apaseo el Grande I was hungry and it was getting dark already. So, I decided to look for a place to rest there. After I had some street tacos I rode to the Bomberos and asked if I could sleep there for one night, but they recommended me to the Casa de la Cultura. Since I didn’t knew the way, a police men who was around escorted me with his motorbike to the place. Sergio- the manager of the Casa de la Cultura – is a passionate cyclist as well and offered me a free room for the night. Initially he even wanted to organize me a hotel room and pay for it but all hotels were already fully booked. But the room he offered me was fine as well and I had a quite and restful night there.

Next day I cycled further towards Celaya. Valentin – my sister’s boyfriend – lived there for one year as an exchange student. He checked with his guest parents Lupita and Oscar and they wanted to meet me. We met in the city center for a quick lunch as I assumed. They invited me to a very nice restaurant and as time went on, more and more friends from the local rotary club joined us. It was dark when we left the restaurant and it was obvious that I would not continue today. In the end I even stayed three nights at their home before I finally continued my trip to Yuriria.

Time to say goodbye

Yuriria is half way between Celaya and Morelia and belongs to the pueblos magicos which is a label for very beautiful little towns here in Mexico. I want to explore that now, after I had breakfast and then continue towards Morelia.
