IGUALA, Oaxaca to ALTAMIRANO, Guererro

In early March of `07, my friend Paul Simon, and I, drove Oaxaca to Taxco.

From Taxco we could have driven straight South to Hwy 200, North of Acapulco, but from there we would have covered country already seen.

We wanted to see new territory and we wanted to see some lakes instead of ocean.

The silly thing is, we found a really big lake at Palo Altos, but we didn't stop.
