We left the hustle and bustle of Puerto Vallarta on a sunny morning, seeking peace in the quiet village of San Sebastian del Oeste in the Sierra Madre Mountains.

The regular detour was closed for repair, sending us on a bus ride from hell, a bus ride that kept me on the edge of my seat.

I had visions of the news report. “Canadian tourists among the dead in a Mexican Bus accident”

Bus Ride13
A hair-pin turn so sharp and the road so narrow, the driver had to make a three-point turn to get around the bend.
Bus Ride10
Riding in the front seat gave me a great view of the danger as  the driver maneuvered each of the hairpin turns.
Bus Ride7
a very narrow washed out section, flowing like a river!
Bus Ride4
The twists and turns along the cliff seemed endless.
A welcome sight indeed!

The peaceful village of San Sebastian Del Oeste.

We arrived safely with a Story to tell.
