Ulli Visits Tepoztlán

November 7, 2022

As do many tourists, Ulli enjoyed visiting Mexico. After enjoying exploring beaches for a few months, she wanted to be at a cooler place and heard about Tepoztlán. I met her at the Friday organic market at the EKKO Hostel and we became close friends.

I love seeing the city that I have lived in since 2003 with the fresh eyes of first time visitors. Here is an earlier blog about a visitor I hosted.

During her three short weeks, we went to the Boy Scout Camp, to the Deer Park, and to different restaurant and club venues.

Boy Scout Camp

Ulli and I hiked over to Meztitla, the Boy Scout Camp, so that I could get some photos I used in the previous month's article.

The Deer Park

The Deer Park has one of my favorite local trails because it is easy hiking, beautiful, and features a running cascade during the rainy season. Of course I had to take Ulli there.

Other Tepoztlán Venues

There's a lot to do and see in Tepoztlán. One of the several restaurants we visited was La Miga, specializing in French cuisine.

Interview of Ulli

Here I let Ulli tell you of her experience of Mexico and Tepoztlán directly.

Before Ulli Leaves

Since so many of my friends enjoyed Ulli's presence, I had a going away party here a few nights before her flight.
