Agave from the Guadalajara-Las Varas Bus to Chacala
The bus ride home from Tonala/Guadalajara about 5 hours. The ride from Las Varas to Guadalajara takes 3.5 hours. Don't ask me why. It's the same road.There are lots of agave farms to the northwest of Guadalajara. The fields looks like shimmering lakes from the distance. I never realized how beautiful agaves are, or how many different varieties there are to chose from. I guess I am assuming people know that Tequilla is made from Agave plants. It's a big deal around here. There is town named Tequilla, but I don't know which came first, the name or the beverage. This photo is, I think, of Magdalena, a small town off the highway.Anyway, I tried taking pictures thru the bus windows, travelling at about 70MPH. Some of them actually turned out, sort of. Thank's to my little Canon camera. Nothing to do with skill on my part.
