I hopped the Pacifico bus to Tepic, approximately a 2 hour ride through the mountains into Tepic Bus Depot, followed by a taxi ride into Tepic centro, which took about 10 minutes.
We toured the major sites in town, art gallery, famous poet’s house, town square, etc. In the Craft building, I bought some gorgeous scarves with filigree type hearts on them. Gorgeous, only bought 3, darn, why didn’t I buy more! Only $10 pesos and will make excellent gifts when I return home.
My good young man above is a “motorcycle Policia.” He looks like Darth Vader doesn’t he! Very obliging to have his pic taken, even got an arm around me.
I sent this pic back to Pender Island, B.C. Canada, saying “Help, Arrested in Tepic” Send $$$$.
We are staying in Guayabitos for 2 1/2 months, not long enough.
