As you cross the border between the states of Jallisco and Colima in the Western part of Mexico, you see a site that's rather unsettling. Armed guards in bunkers with machine guns. I took this picture out the van window as we were stopped and questions. Thank goodness for our guide, Antonio who explained who we were, why we were there, and what we were planning to see and do once across the border. We didn't leave countries here folks, we crossed a border between states; much like you would leaving Ohio and entering Indiana. WOW...talk about culture shock. There were guards on both sides of the street and a bunker right in the middle of the street with these armed military personnel.
with very detailed wooden carvings on the doors.
After our late lunch we returned to, Villa Paraiso, our villa in Manzanillo which was about a 45 minute drive.
It was an interesting day, and I'm glad we got to explore a bit; but it isn't a place I'd like to return to.
