The key will be finding a ride to the hut from either El Ciudad Serdan or Atzinzitla (or somewhere else) and back. I plan on taking a bus from Mexico City to Puebla and then Puebla to whichever town/city offers the best ...

Nepal Floods

Nepal is one of my favorite places to visit. The people I have met there have an admirable toughness, but are still kind and friendly. I know that we have our own problems in this country, but we also have more resourced to cope with them.
