Guadalajara to Mexico City/ Erika Rowe

The ride from Ixtlan Del Rio to Guadalajara just got more and more beautiful. We moved from the dense jungle to corn fields to agave plantations. We stopped in Tequila for a tasting but decided not to do a tour of the factory. Instead we found our way to our new Couchsurfing friend Miguel. Couchsurfing is a bit of a coin flip. People are on it for different reasons and Miguel’s page looked a little bit suspicious to me. He didn’t have any friends and he specified he only wants to host girls. Well. That’s a red flag. Luckily, I have a trusting nature and we decided to meet him before we found a hotel. He’s fantastic. He and his friends dropped everything to hang out with us and show us around. We celebrated Mexico’s Independence Day with them at a bar and toured all around the city. They even cooked us a delicious 2 a.m. BBQ. I helped Miguel rewrite his Couchsurfing profile so he wouldn’t appear so creepy. And now I feel we really have a friend in Guadalajara instead of another night spent in a hotel.
