CARRETERA 175 MEXICO.

POCHUTLA TO OAXACA

The turn off to Oaxaca is also the turn off to Puerto Angel.

It is, about, ½ an hour North of Huatulco on Carretera 200.

Within a few miles you will come to the bustling community of Pochutla.

PAUL GOT THE FEELING THE OTHER CUSTOMERS
WERE NOT PLEASED TO SEE US.
I HAVE A FEELING THAT IT WAS THE WAY PAUL IS DRESSED.
I HAVE HEARD RUMOURS THAT MEXICANS DON'T LIKE PEOPLE
WHO DON'T WEAR LONG PANTS AND A SHIRT

OCOTLAN DE MORELOS
(Buildings beside road.)

Ocotlan was a strange town. The streets were very confusing. If you can see, to your right, as we were coming into town there is a small sign, `no traffic straight ahead'. We didn't see it and ended up the wrong way on a one way street. We should have turned to the right. Twice we stopped for directions and both times got someone who spoke very good English. However the second person told us to turn to the right at the end of the street we were on. It was a dead end street so we had to turn left or right. The arrow on the wall in front of us pointed to the right. So, as the man had told us, we turned right, into oncoming traffic. It was a one way street going the other way. Both, the man, and the arrow, were wrong.
