This is the story of my experiences living as an ex-pat in Mexico since 2003. It's to culminate in a published book. With your help, I'll be editing, selecting a title, and cover art: a participatory project. Your comments encouraged!

Cuernavaca-Part Two

July 27, 2019

There are many nice restaurants to chose from. And places to shop. Here is a contrast—the large international store: Walmart, with a small local one across the street: a homeopathic pharmacy.

Cuernavaca sports a gigantic market covering many square blocks at different street levels. Here is just one section with food.

One part of the market houses a large outdoor bus terminal. From here, a direct bus leaves for Tepoztlan every twenty minutes. With my senior citizen card I pay a half price fare, $0.70 USD one way.

Cuernavaca Part One was the previous blog. This is a continuation from that one. Traffic is often heavy, and streets very difficult to locate, but taxis are inexpensive and drivers know how to get everywhere.
