Cuetzala to Cocula

Here's some video I shot while Todd, myself, and Jose's dog rode in the back of Jose's truck through the mountains and some small towns in Guerrero, Mexico to a meeting with County officials in Cocula, GRO. We were meeting with the President of Cocula county, representing the Chicago chapter of Engineers Without Borders to discuss our project as well as other environmental projects in the area.

Cuetzala, GRO - Comida!

Cuetzala is known, not only for its charming population and beautiful landscapes, but also its fantastic food. Here are a few shots of our breakfasts and dinners...I estimated about 75 tortillas for the 9 days, each one well worth it.
