Adventure Update!

Road trip to Tequila, Jalisco 

 Jose Cuervo associate shows us
how the Agave plant is cut and trimmed.




He cut one in half so we could taste
the inside. It was a lot like jicama.


We then went into the town of Tequila to tour
the Jose Cuervo Distillery. We passed on the tour
as we've toured other distilleries and chose to go 
find something to eat.
The raven is in the Jose Cuervo courtyard as
Cuervo means Raven in Spanish. 


 No samples from this truck...



The Senora and her helpers prepared
a very tasty lunch for us.


These two women made tortillas non-stop.

The view from our table. We think
the local Mercados have some of the best food.
Much better than going to a "Gringo" restaurant!

We stumbled upon an old barrel factory that
might have been a distillery at one point.
It was a photo delight for me- so many gorgeous
opportunities. Here are a few...


 Entry courtyard


Beautiful barrel and ladder


 Around every corner was another visual delight.


We sat outside while waiting for our bus to 
take us back to Guadalajara...

Tomorrow I will post more updates...
Have a great day and evening!

Looks like you're having a fabulous time and great weather too. You missed the big rain storm here. It was wonderful.

Have a fabulous time. Big hugs. ♥♥♥

Amazing photos. And yes, that looks like a distillery.
Amazing that under all those stiff 'leaves,' the Agave is round.
