8:30AM - La Concepcion.
The road past our Nite Camp was pretty quiet for sleeping. When morning came, cars began traveling down the hill. We see in Google Earth that there is a town a bit to the west. Curious, we went to take a peek.

The quiet town of La Concepcion is there. It appears that the road west ends at La Concepcion. We have made a Morning Camp here to walk around this town.

2PM - Eating at a roadside restaurant.
From time to time you may wonder about the food quality at restaurants in Mexico. Have you thought about Montezuma's revenge? How come I do not seem to get sick when eating at restaurants here in Mexico?

This afternoon I stopped for a meal at a roadside restaurant. I saw that a woman who appeared to be a grandmother was doing much of the cooking. She was making corn tortillas over a wood fired grill. She had already prepared a stack of tortillas about 12" high! "Who is going to eat all these tortillas?", I asked. "There are fifteen in my family who live here.", she told me.

Her daughter who was also working here asked me, "Would you like quesadillas?" I told her, "Yes!". "Do you make carne asada?", I asked hopefully.

Doesn't this look great?

The family here was eating at their own restaurant. A good sign that the food prepared here is good. At some restaurants, I see a lot of locals eating. Another good sign.

7:30PM - Camped in the hills.

Around 5PM we found our Nite Camp in the hills southeast of the Town of Zacapu. I finished off the last of the three quesadillas that I'd bought earlier in the afternoon. Watched the movie "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" with Humphrey Bogart while eating.
