When in Rome...

Today,had to be on the tequila trail. We decided to sack off the tours and to pick the distilleries ourselves. We went to Mundo Cuerva (seeing as it's so popular in the UK); Sauza (which had pretty gardens, but the tour guide rushed us around and seemed bored - in fairness, she probably does the same speech 10 times a day); and La Cofradia (by far the most interesting, informative and you got to see the whole process from start to finish). All tours included plenty of different tequila tasting and happy ending Margaritas. Again, La Confadia, being the least commercial won hands down for the quality award.  Although, at that point, they could've given us fuel and we would've drank it. We actually spent 4 hours in the place, including dinner in the restaurant, where we tried amongst other dishes, the local speciality torta ahogada (literally 'drowned sandwich), a chili sauce-soaked pork roll. We both decided to taste the extra hot sauce before we drowned it even more. OMG - I actually lost the power of speech at one point. Not sure, how I'll cope with the hottest chili in the world tasting in a few weeks...

Oh, good purchase alert - buy a tequila barrel. They're really cheap (abut 100 pesos), and funky souvenir to display at home (we think anyway).
