On The Road Again
Our friends departed Mexico City for the United States by plane and we left for Cuernavaca by bus. Of course, we didn't realize that today was a holiday and at least half of the people in Mexico City had a similar idea. Lots of them left by bus as is evident here, but even more left by private car clogging the roads out of town. A trip that is estimated to take less than an hour, took us just slightly less than four hours. The first three hours (actually two minutes less than three) were spent in Mexico City traffic fighting our way south. When we finally hit the autopista, it was pretty much smooth sailing along the toll road to Cuernavaca.
