Lots to see and do....

Botanical Gardens near Tuito 

Lily Pads and Blossoms

Tree Fern

That's a  Philodendron!?

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.

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