Music in Mexico on the Road to the Mayans

A pleasant ride through the Yucatan countryside on our way to see the Mayan ruins in Coba. No getting lost, there’s only one very straight road through the jungle with just a few humble hamlets along the way. 

Not quite so many Gringo tourist-targeted money traps on this route. In fact, as depressing as some of it was (definite Third World feel), it was good to see some parts of the country outside the sphere of the tourist trade.

Apropos music by Los Lobos and Los Straightjackets. We listened to some Santana, Rodrigo y Gabriela and Clash on the way, too.
