Yesterday the Botanical Garden and Today's Bus Ride to Where.....?

Lots to see and do....
First we went to a Botanical Garden..


Botanical Gardens near Tuito 


Lily Pads and Blossoms


Tree Fern


That's a  Philodendron!?
Yep- they grow 'em big in the tropics!


Los Horcones River


Close up- but not sure what plant this is....


Melon loving birds....


Hummingbird staking out his territory..


Now we are on the bus- 
headed towards another adventure...

Fields of Agave for tequila...

 After a calm bus ride we have a 
matador for taxi driver!
Check out the poised thumb for horn honking!
Actually he was a good driver.


 Russell with paper mache 
Day of the Dead Catrina...


 Yes- we are in Guadalajara...
intense city of .
4,000,000
At least that is what the taxi guy said... 


And with gorgeous historical buildings...
That's it for now!
