Oh Jesus!

This giant statue of Jesus is looking over the little towns around Tasco. Meanwhile, I wonder where the next trip is going to take me...

All the Silver of Tasco, Mexico

Isn't this a wonderful panoramic view? I took this picture in Tasco, a famous Silver Town in Mexico since 1717. In this town you can buy all kind of juwelry in silver. If you have the money of course! Tasco is also known for the Santa Prisca Church. Santa Prisca's facade and interior decorations are Mexico's best and most delightful examples of Mexican baroque.

Tasting Mexican Beer

As you can see, I had a wonderful time in Acapulco. Sun, sea and cool drinks! What more can you expect? Here I'm having expertise on Cerveza Mexicana.
It's very good, you know! Mexico has a thriving brewing custom that dates from Aztec times, as well as a tradition from the 19th century. While it produces fine examples of European styles the traditional beer is pulque.

Mexican Rat!

Hello everyone! I've crossed the border and now I am in Mexico. Here you see me at the famous beach of Acapulco. I was prepared for a good swim, but my friends stopped me, because it's much to dangerous to swim over here. Sometimes the waves measure more than 3 meters over here! So I sat on the beach and enjoyed the magnificent view.

Somewhere, Over The Rainbow...

Wow, This is the Gateway between Canada and the USA. It connects the Cities of Niagara Falls, New York and Niagara Falls, Ontario. The bridge is called Rainbow Bridge. I'm still on the Canadian side of the border, dreaming of somewhere over the rainbow.

Horseshoe Falls, Canada

Isn't this an amazing picture? Here I stand at the Horseshoe Falls. The Canadian side of the Niagara Falls is approximately 52 metres (170 ft) high. I've never seen something like that in my whole life. It was so thrilling! I tell you, this world is really full of wonders.
