THE TEQUILA EXPRESS
When I was in Guadalajara, Mexico, I held a ticket for a trip that turned out to be colorful. I did not think that this one day trip would be an unforgettable memory. That morning a taxi dropped me from the hotel to the train station to begin my journey. I was expecting to ride the train operated by Ferromex, and they named it the Tequila Express.
Travel by train from Guadalajara to the final destination in a small town that is also called by the name of a drink, Tequila, takes approximately 160 minutes.
Travelling with The Tequila Express was a trip filled with live music by Mariachi groups, performances from local artists, touring around the hacienda and tequila distillery and drink as much tequila.
Enjoy the photos below and I recommend you to play the song from Lila Downs, “Paloma Negra”. It will bring you to a world full of color.
“Paloma negra, paloma negra ¿dónde, dónde andarás?
Ya no jueges con mi honra parrandera…”
