I got my map out and discovered a secondary route over the mountains to Oaxaca. I managed to push my motorcycle through the crowd and around all the parked cars blocking the road and made my escape... The temperature cooled off and the palm trees gave way to rain forest. The road was twisty, which is usually good on a motorcycle, but this was way beyond any "twisty" I´ve ever ridden. Fortunately, it would only last for 250 miles or so.
