Geographic center of Mexico

After a nice downhill ride from Zacatecas, I arrived at the end of the afternoon in Aguascalientes. Melissa, my CouchSurfing host, was still at work. I stopped at la 'Plaza de los Mariachis', where local bands wait for people to hire them for weddings, 15 years birthdays, and such events.

I arrived a bit early in Aguascalientes and Melissa was still at work, so I went for a Chamoyada, a delicious ice cream with mango, kiwi, and chamoy. While I was eating this delicious sweet and chili thing, a guy on a scooter stopped by to order two to go.

"Were those your friends that have already arrived?", he asked. "Where?!" I replied. "De courtesia", said the nice lady, inviting me to the chamoyada. Thank you! And off I was, following Alberto on his scooter, showing me around the city by night on the way to the restaurant.

Two touring bikes were parked in front of this restaurant! I recognized Chris inside, who I had met earlier in La Paz, and met with the wonderful Marie, 24 years old, from California, also planning to cycle all the way to Ushuaia this year!

With Jorge, Maria-Jose, and Melissa, our CouchSurfing hosts, we spent one day exploring the city, visited the Museo Nacional de la Muerte, had an ice cream near the geographic center of Mexico, and shared a wonderful diner, with a delicious pear curry prepared by Marie and Chris.
