Where I stayed
Pochutla, Oaxaca, Mexico
We left Zipolite by taxi to Pochutla ($10) and at 5:15 PM bordered a deluxe executive sleeper bus for Mexico City. It was pricey at $75 each, but oh so luxurious. Huge seats that reclined to almost horizontal.

Arvid had at one time wanted to complete the trip home, to Michigan, by land. But now he is too tired and the idea has lost its appeal. The last destination on Irina's itinerary was Zipolite and now that she's been there and done that she is ready to go home as well. While strolling down the Paseo de la Reforma we walk into an Air Mexicana office and buy two tickets to DTW leaving on the 15th. Arvid chose the 15th because we had flown out of DTW on Nov. 15, 2006. That will make the trip and even 20 months. With our tickets in Irina's purse we spend the rest of our time just enjoying the world's largest city.
