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.
TURN EAST TO OAXACA
WE MADE A WRONG TURN AND LEFT THE HIGHWAY
THIS STREET WAS BLOCKED AND WE HAD TO BACK OUT
VERY NARROW BUT IT GOT US BACK TO THE HIGHWAY
232 KM. TO OAXACA
SAN JOSE CHACALAPA
THIS PICTURE WAS TAKEN THROUGH THE BACK WINDOW OF THE RESTAURANT WHICH WAS PERCHED ON THE EDGE OF THE MOUNTAIN. IF YOU LOOK CLOSE YOU CAN SEE THE HIGHWAY CUTTING ACROSS THE FAR SLOPE
INSIDE IS A VERY PLEASANT RESTAURANT
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
DURING OUR TRAVELS WE SAW MANY PLACES CALLED `EL MIRADOR'
SANTA MARIA JALATENGO
EVEN THE SMALLEST PLACES HAVE A NAME
THROUGHOUT THIS AREA
BUILDINGS ARE PERCHED ON RIDGE TOPS
AND ON THE STEEP HILLSIDES
SAN MIGUEL SUCHIXTEPEC
LOOKING DOWN FROM THE BACK OF THE RESTAURANT
WHERE WE STOPPED FOR LUNCH
FROM THE RESTAURANT,
PERCHED ON THE SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY,
IT WAS A SHEER DROP, DOWN THE MOUNTAIN SIDE
OCOTLAN DE MORELOS
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.
