After a rest day hanging out with Cain and his friends, we were back on the road. I only had 8 days to get to Mexico City before my test at UNAM so while there were more things to do, such as going to the hot-springs, there wasn’t enough time.
It was generally overcast, and we spent more than 3 hours hiding from the rain. The annoying part was that the majority was just before we got to León where we would meet our Warmshowers host, Hector, and his family. We arrived and were greeted by their son, Sam, and we were impressed by his quite wonderful English. It turned out he also spoke French too as his mum, Mikaella, is from Paris.
We were shown so much warmth that we ended up staying for an unplanned rest day where we got to see around León, the leather capital of México. There was a trip to Hector’s shoe factory, the downtown area where I nearly got a free AMLO t-shirt, lunch with Hector, Mikaella and some friends of theirs and then, in the evening, tacos with seso (brain) and tuétano (marrow), the first tacos I haven’t liked.
