... insists we take some pizza to-go, which is extremely nice of him.
By now, it's already after 1pm and we are just now departing Pinos. As we take the main road out of town, we pass by Xeniffer, Mauri and Paulina starting the first day of a 9-day pilgrimage. As we keep pedaling, we catch up to the head of the pilgrimage line where some men carry a figure of the Virgin Mary and other religious statues while everyone prays out loud together.

Had an interesting encounter with la policia last week. It's illegal to drink on the streets in most parts of Mexico (a law which solely exists so that the police can line their pockets by issuing "fines").
