    Mexican street scene...

    Mexico 2009.

    Fatigue still haunts me even after 9 hours of fine sleep. Again I have no particular lust for the cycling day in front of me. Is fond of the flexible check-out times at hotels in Mexico (between noon and 2PM), so I extend my “pre-noon room trance” and get my beloved tennisfix from the TV screen.

    Jesus is the rock...

    Bicycle day is short and poor on events worth writing home about. In the early sunset light I log into the only hotel in Tapanatepec, Hotel Casablanca, and go out to have a look at the small town that exudes life this Saturday night.

    Munching lunch tacos...

    The boys play basketball and football on the concrete field in the middle of the plaza. Table soccer games and other amusement park stuff rotates and the air is full of carnival. People whistle, greet and stare at me everywhere I go. Both sexes, all ages. Me no like 🙁

    Trash in Mexico.

    Just outside Tepanatepec, Mexico.

    So instead of being stared at as if I was an animal in the zoo, I barricade myself in my hotel room (aka the sanctuary) with homemade killer sandwiches and forgettable cable TV from the big world.

    Tapanatepec cathedral.

    Guess the menu?
