Hello! If you have been reading along, you would have seen my travels in Mexico– and I’m excited to share part 2 with you today! It can be summed up in pretty much one word: Tequila. I’ll take you along the pictures and experience and add tidbits of discussion here and there! Let’s do this..
Starting with the roads. So many people forget to photograph the roads while travelling, and focus on the destination-but I think roads are also a vital part of our travel journey. We spend most of our time going from place to place, on these roads. It’s important to get a feel of the landscape, to spot buildings on the horizon, admire the scenery and take pictures of them, too.
On the way to the tequila farm. You see these green spiky things on the ground? That’s tequila!

It’s uprooted! I’m imagining him thinking, “almost done..just need to use this tool now.’
Let’s neaten it up a bit, shall we?
Wow! It looks like all the leaves are taken out, and we get left with this..pinapple looking mutant. Which still needs tools to spruce it up a bit.
And there you have it!
I don’t know about to you..but to me they really look like a cross between a giant pineapple and a coconut. That’s tequila right there, folks. Maybe that’s why they add pineapple and coconut juice with cocktails and whatnot. Makes sense now..
Gnarled hands from working out in the farm all day. I wonder how many tequila plants would he have cultivated and uprooted like this one? Thousands, probably.
Ah yes, let’s take a walk in the fields of
The farmer’s son on a horse, the farmer and tequila all around. Mexico makes everything exotic! Half expecting the Zorro cast here, actually..
This horse was a beaut. Had to take a pic.
Okay, two pics.
On the way back! Had to take a picture of the road again. After all..it’s all about the journey, not just the destination. Tequila is a wonder. I’d love to know your thoughts in the comments below! xo Aaria
