Guadalajara to Aguascalientes by Bus

All the buses from Guadlajara to Aguascalientes leave from from Nueva Central, at the end of Metro Line 3, station Central de Autobuses.  We picked bus company Primera Plus and bought the tickets online, huge seats with individual video screens (a first for me).  I was planning on listening to my Spanish lessons, instead I watched Little Women (2019) dubbed in Spanish.  It's like being on the airplane, but more leg room and more interesting scenery.

John's cousin Danny met us at the bus station, such a hospitable host.  We must have seen hundreds of greetings and farewells at buses.  This was a first for ourselves.  

His house is a typical row house that opens directly onto the street, which we must have walked by by the thousands, but this is the first time we have stayed in one.  

A very novel day!

The afternoon we arrived (October 28), workmen were busy setting up for the 5-day Festival de las Calaveras (Festival of Skulls) in Plaza Patria, the main square. Before the Festival - Aguascalientes, Mexico

As always, the pictures never disappoint!

From Aguascalientes, there is a very convenient direct flight to Cancun.  Since the wedding is at a private beach south of Playa del Carmen,...
