After Selva Magica, we went back to the hotel to freshen up for our last adventure of the day.
It was time to go visit the Jose Cuervo factory and drink some tequila!
Our tour guide told us a fascinating story on the way to the town of Tequila.
This guy showed us how they harvest the good stuff.
Gas stations don't show their prices because gas is nationalized and it's the same price everywhere.
Tequila was a really cute little town.
This was the little paseo that ran between the factory and the restaurant we had dinner in later that night.
We got fancy for our tour
Well, we did a tour, we drank, we ate, and we headed out. I apparently didn't take any pictures of it. What happens in Mexico....lol
The next morning we walked around Guadalajara a little bit.
It was a beautiful morning and there weren't many people out yet.
Downtown Guadalajara is a beautiful place.
It's funny to think this place is closer to Los Angeles than New York City. It felt really far away.
But also kind of familiar and comfortable. I really need to get back there and spend a little more time!
So that city was just totally unexpected and wonderful for me, but it was time to head back to Mexico City.
Typical staring out the window shot for most of the drive
There was an 'issue' with the 'lavatory' toward the end of the trip and we had to get creative.
Here's the 'fancy' chicken and cactus dish that we had at our final meal as a group.
And that's the ballgame! End of the TPR trip! What an amazing experience!!!! I left the hotel that night and headed to where I would be staying for the remainder of my stay in Mexico City. Tomorrow, I snag 3 more credits :)
Nothing like putting a whole bottle of sunscreen on my face to mask the smell of rotten, mixing, poo. I totally forgot that even happened until I saw that picture. Brings back some great smells. Seriously awesome trip report. I can't wait to do a return trip to Mexico!

I think I have some more German rides waiting for you in the next update!
That last day was tough because it was the end of the TPR segment but the beginning of my own. I had made so many friends that I didn't want them to leave, and I was also losing my safety net! Time to see how I do in another country, by myself, with little knowledge of the local language. Lots of emotions!!!

Wow! Awesome photos and rides . Nice to see some old Schwarzkopfs found a home... One question though, was the Chinese park really as uncomfortable as it looked in the pictures? Other than that park the Mexico trip looked like a ton of fun!
Coaster Count- 113 Wood- 23 Steel- 90 Top 5 Steel- Diamondback, Bizarro, I305, Montu, Apollo's Chariot Top 5 Wood- Lightning Racer, Beast, Grizzly (KD), Swamp Fox (FK), Wildcat (HP)
If Fury 325 ends up being on the same level as Diamondback it may just kill me...
^You know, it DID seem a little uncomfortable but I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that we didn't know anything about it. We also only had a short period of time to catch the credits, explore the park, and eat.
It was REALLY spread out with lots of nothing in between rides.
Like I said, the local families seem to go there to relax and have a family day in a large controlled space. There was a fairly large water park that we didn't visit, and there was also a large ropes course including zip lines that we didn't even see! I learned about the ropes course after we visited, and if we had time for it I'm sure TPR would have had a blast doing it!
Probably the most un-traditional theme park I have ever been to, but to the local people, it was their local park. Another odd thing was that some of the vendors seemed to have nothing to do with the park itself. There was this one lady that had a bunch of random different items, including a 2 liter of coke for $30 pesos ($2.30 USD). I bought some Adventure Time wristbands from another vendor. Weird place!
