And finally after sun, cloud, fog and hail, comes the sprinkling of snow....in all its pristine beauty..
Once up at the crater, there are two lakes called El Sol and La Luna, and there are infinite trails for some tough intrepid hiking, or softer clambering over rocks and boulders....
If you don't have a car, the easiest way to get to the crater is to take a bus from Mexico City to Toluca (Observatorio Bus Station - one hour ) and then negotiate with a taxi driver. They will drive you up to the crater, wait while you hike about for two or three hours, and then bring you back for 800 pesos per cab ( $80 before the devaluation!)
Now when I check out all the MYWORLDTUESDAY postings this week in Finland, Norway, Winnipeg, USA etc, I won't feel so left out. Don't you just love the diversity Mexico has to offer??
