We leave Mitla and drive to Tehuantepec, situated in the isthmus (istmo) of Tehuantepec.
Underway we stop in:


and have lunch in EL TíO CHíCO


Nadia and Gerdien.


Tehuantepec Arrival at 05.00 PM.  It is here sweltering hot and suffocating. We take a little walk in the little village and visit the covered market. There runs also a rail-line through the city. However it has never been used. The railway was build once to connect the GREAT OCEAN with the GULF OF MEXICO, but it has never been used. It became PANAMA for this purpose.


The inside market. See the hanging flesh... And that at temperature of far above 30 oC or 86 Fahrenheit!!!


The little town Tehuantepec is actually used just for passing through. The hotel is simple.
Carry men carry our trunks. There is no elevator, therefore they sweat like crazy. They carry, however, abdominal belts. The hotel has a beautiful swimming pool with built in bar, therefore we enjoy a nice Corona...


The next morning we leave Tehuantepec and drive to Cañon el Sumidero. But...... first we eat something on the way to it.


The point where Mexico is on its narrowest. In the far distance we see the ocean and on the forefront a garbage-belt with vultures.


Of all gas stations which we have seen is 95% PEMEX.
Piddle and buying some sweets and refreshments...

Tot nu toe betreft het een viertal vakanties: Suriname, Egypte, Peru, Bolivia en Mexico. Verder een kort fotoverslag van de zonsverduistering in 1999 te noord-frankrijk in de buurt van het plaatsje Spincourt. Er is een mogelijkheid om mijn gastenboek te tekenen.
