It's been over a week since we came back, but we went for family vacations to the beach, Manzanillo to be precise. Hideous town, fairly ok beach. Now, if your expectations of the beach comes from watching hip-hop videos on MTV you are in for an unpleasant surprise. The beautiful, slim, bikini clad women you expected to behold are nowhere to be seen. More like a bunch of noisy, un-educated kids and obese, land-whale like adults. Needless to say, the beach is not my thing. I'll tolerate it for a couple of days, but it's not my thing.
After that we went through Colima to Comala and on to the volcano (Volcán de Colima). Now that was more like it. We stopped by the gorgeous hacienda of Nogueras in Comala and then spent the night in a little cabin by a pond with a view of the volcano. It really was stunningly beautiful. Dense rainforest all the way from Comala to the volcano, with quiet cow farms here and there. Right up my alley, being a the redneck that I am. By the pond we ran into Erasmus, a professional "norteño" musician who gave us a hook and a bottle to fish. My catch below (hover over pictures for caption comments).
Not for Pussies!
