Zacatecas

I am in Zacatecas, a wonderful old mining town in Zacatecas state dating back to the 1500s. I took a guided tour this morning of one of the old silver mines and I think I annoyed the tour guide with my myriad technical questions. Then I found a bunch of other mine adits and shafts where the locals seem to have been dumping garbage for years.

I'm on a computer right now that has a card reader, so here are some pictures from my camera:



I take a hydrometer reading at a tequila distillery in the town of Tequila




Crocodiles in Chiapas state.

Hanging out in the oh so touristy but still fascinating Mina el Eden in Zacatecas

I just realized I haven't been taking many pictures of myself.

You have to take pictures of yourself. Otherwise you were never there. Plus it is fun to do.
