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.
The dirt road was not built for large vehicles.
There were no guard rails to protect us from the steep cliffs that dropped off into the jungle.
I had visions of the news report. “Canadian tourists among the dead in a Mexican Bus accident”
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.
Riding in the front seat gave me a great view of the danger as the driver maneuvered each of the hairpin turns.
a very narrow washed out section, flowing like a river!
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.
