Villa Corona & Guadalajara February 17 - 25, 2016

Our stay at Villa Corona is adjacent to a natural hot springs water park.  Campsite is beautiful but the electricity fluctuations continues to be an issue.
Our first tour was a full day driving out to the town of Tequila where (you know what is made) and a tour of the Agave plantation of Casa Herradura. It is a beautiful hacienda and massive tequila production operation where we had a sampling of 3 tequilas (still smells like kerosene!) before boarding our bus to the Pyramid ruins.  These are round pyramids, different from what we are accustomed to seeing.
Our second day tour was to the city of Guadalajara, touring the government palace and the downtown area.
Third day was RV maintenance which included rotating the tires on the trailer.  We have been experiencing wheel bearing issues with one wheel of the trailer.  Larry is getting to the stage he can service wheel bearings blindfolded!
