Shorter ride today with some hills.
Next larger town after Huajuapan is 93km away. However, also 1600m of climb. Since I have some time until Oaxcaca, elected to split this hill region into two shorter days. Today was 914m of climb in 40km. Several small villages along the road today, though no services until the end.
The road had many bends and multiple memorials giving reminders of the dangers. However, overall traffic was light and gave plenty of room.
These donkeys right along the road. Continue to see goats along the way as well.
Town of Santa Maria Tutla below at 30km. After this a good descent and then last climb back to 2200m elevation.
Tamazulapam looked like small town, though had at least two hotels.
Hotels typically post their prices. At 22 peso per dollar, not too expensive and nice to have bed and shower as well as hot water and wifi.
I had dinner at the restaurant associated with the hotel. It was a fixed price menu including:
- Mole Verde
- Corn Tortillas
Price was 50 pesos.
Wandered through town to see the church and the main square.
Behind was a whole shopping district.
This guy had a stack of birds in cages for sale.
Also interesting enough “moto taxi” seen in Oaxaca which those from India will recognize.
