Had a great ride on the Chepe from El Fuerte, Sinaloa to Divisadero, Chihuahua. It's amazing that a few hours' train ride will take you from a hotel room where air conditioning was absolutely required to the next where we had to flip on our heat. We are currently enjoying wine time, compliments of Richard, as we watch the late afternoon sun light up the Copper Canyon.
Tonight's celebration? Having survived the world's longest zipline. I can't even describe the experience: beautiful, frightening, crazy, fun. More photos and commentary to follow, but here's a You Tube link that got us all prepped...
The Tarahumara are out, as always, selling their beautiful baskets, blankets, native violins, etc. What's amazing is that the price of these beautifully woven crafts have not changed at all since we first came in the early 2000's. And with today's exchange rate of 1 $USD = 18 MXN pesos, things are a real bargain.
Heading back south to El Fuerte tomorrow, then we'll get to overfly this beautiful country the day after.
Once I have more time and better internet, I'll post some good photos for all to see.
