From Veracruz I headed west to Cordoba. It felt like a long climb, made worse by a light rain. The side of the autopista wasn’t perfect, but in a situation like that it seemed better than being on the free road. The rain really picked up when I got to Cordoba and was looking for Juan Carlos’, my host, place. It turned out that he was in his family restaurant and when I got there I got to dry off and then enjoy his mum’s delicious cooking. He was working in the internet cafe next door and I got to catch up with my ever-growing email backlog. In the evening, Juan Carlos studies to become a chef, so he invited me to his school where I got to watch, and taste, as they made some delicious pancakes (rabbit was also made, but being the only pet I’ve ever had I’m not eating rabbit anytime soon).

After a rest day getting shown around the area with Juan Carlos, where we went to Orizaba and to a bonsai garden, I was ready to ride to Puebla. I’d been in touch with a Warmshowers host who had offered me a place, but that fell through and as it was still raining heavily in Cordoba I decided to take a bus back to DF. I could see Puebla another day. We headed to the restaurant and hung out there for a while as I waited for the bus back to DF and studied, getting ready for my final course of Spanish.
