- Still hoping you will pop the still virgin regional forum for other areas with some of your travel adventures around Chiapas, Vera Cruz, Yucatan, etc. We even relish the occasional forays into Alabama and California. I especially liked the detour you made into Seattle. Did I ever mention I used to date Kurt Cobain's cousin Colleen throughout the 90's?
You are free to take us anywhere you wish to go, Dawg.
Finally, we have arrived at a reason Kurt shot hisseff.
I do appreciate that invitation Peter since, at times, I have felt that forays into Chiapas life might be far afield from discourse regarding Michoacan but as I am inclined to return to Western Mexico for at least part of the year, I must try to maintain relationships in that afflicted place. I m also pleased to have observed that someone posted a guide to the Michoacan coast which, while I do not plan to hike that abominable region, may prove to be a fine drive-by place worthy of a detour upon my anticipated return to Lake Chapala from benighted Chiapas and a couple of days at unsung Playa Troncones across the border in Guerrero?
A place similar to Playa Troncones in that it is noted for wide and unspoiled beaches with (during the week at least) few humans to spoil the solitude and endless sand upon which to run one´s canines, is the rathole Puerto Arista on the Chiapas coast just south of the Oaxaca state line and a fine place it is if somewhat primitive as is most of the Chiapas coast which emulates the Michoacan coast in that regard. When your Michoacan readers feel compelled to venture beyond their spendid environs, I recommend this isolated land of wild beaches and isolated coves as a bit of paradise. Between Tonalá and Tapachula in the Soconusco just up from Guatemala there is endless pleasure to be found by the adventurous traveler just as is the case in Michoacan. Have at it but try to choose times when Dawg is not there and tell no one I ever let you in on to this place.
