The Reader's Companion to Mexico Reviewed by Allan Cogan

This is an odd volume. I originally bought it because it advertises itself as "a gathering of some of the best travel writing ever" about Mexico.

However, that's not a criticism. read more

Headin' South: Cuernavaca to Oaxaca Discussion Thread Forum

Arriving before 1pm, poorer by $71 pesos for the three tolls charged on even this short stretch of road, we got off the Cuota and cruised Cuernavaca from south to north on the old free highway 95 looking for a hotel.
