We've made it to Day 7 of this Fiesta Mexicana, and all is well in Uruapan! It's a beautiful, friendly, subtropical city where avocado and macadamia nuts dominate the menu! After a walk through the National Park and a lively stroll through the plaza central, we enjoyed avocado-tequila gazpacho, followed by macadamia-nut encrusted trout, caught fresh locally. Today we are off for a day of sightseeing: Paricutin Volcano and the Templo San Juan Parangaricutiro. (Try saying THAT word after a bowl full of avocado-tequila soup!)
Update on our marathon reader Mike: he DID finish reading his book on our day of leisure at Laguna Santa Maria del Oro.
