When I came to Mexico my thought was that I would hear a lot of Mariachi bands and other music genre’s with a heavy guitar and brass sound. Instead the soundtrack of Mexico that I will remember is the following:

Acapulco: Trance music on pimped out public buses. And by pimped out I mean buses with custom flame paint jobs, sound systems with more than enough base, strobe lights timed to the trance music and, of course, black lights. These are the best public buses I’ve ever been on.

Teotihuacan: Lady Gaga

Oaxaca: The My Heart Will Go On (a.k.a. The Titanic Song)

Puerto Escondido: Poker face

More Daily Events Told by Kate:

We decided to go to Hierve el Agua and see the area. We walked to the local bus station and took a bus to a small town called Mitla about an hour away. Supposedly (according to the lying guide book), there was another bus that would take us to Hierve el Agua. Sadly, there was no bus, so we got in the back of a sketchy truck. Then we drove up a mountain on a dirt road for an hour, although we bounced the entire time, the views from the back were amazing. We slowly climbed to the top of the mountain, then down the other side. We then arrived at the springs which feed the beautiful pools.

Sam and I had the pools to ourselves for about a half hour. The water was the perfect temperature and the sun was out and shining. We enjoyed two hours there. Then returned to Mitla after an hour trip down the mountain, then another hour trip to Oaxaca. We stopped at the loacal market to eat dinner. It was unbelivable!!! Oaxaca is known for two things; Mole and Chocolate. Unfortunately, we were not there long enough to try all of the different Mole’s. We then returned to the hostel in the rain, yes it is rainy season…

The following day we traveled to Puerto Escondido. Puerto Escondido is known for the Mexican Pipeline (surf championship), so at times the waves are too dangerous to swim in.

    So apparently my comment from before was not posted correctly but I wanted to let you know that your picture by the pool with Kate made our day (me and Jessica). We loved the farmers tan you're rocking!

    Haha. I know it's pretty amazing. 10 days on the beach in Puerto Escondido has helped tame it some but there is still a good ways to go.
