at 5pm so decided to take the bus and go…here is the bus station in SMA and I found a good safe place to park the scooter

Here is the place to get the ticket can you believe it 50 pesos…4 dollars for a bus ride of about 75km!!!!

Off we go!!!

As the bus approached the station I saw that we passed the soccer stadium and it was an easy 15 minute walk to the stadium….so far so good…

There were lots of people and vendors around and I found a local soccer shirt but couldn’t decide upon the blue home shirt or the white away shirt (more on that later)..

This is where the problem started hundreds of fans and I tried to get to a ticket window only to be told all the tickets were sold out….Now I know they were playing the best club in Mexico and I was there 90 minutes before the start but surprised no tickets available.  I stood aside and watched the crowds and it was obvious that many people were in the same position as me and there were scalpers around but also lots of police and it was obvious from their actions that scalpers were not allowed…I watched and tried for over 45 minutes but could not get my hands on a ticket and the game was about to start and hundreds of people still outside…so decided enough and walked back to the bus station….saw this lady on the side walk

Just arrived at the terminal and got a ticket and got on the bus right away and was back in SMA by 7pm…..

On the ride home stopped on the road to take these photos…some of the best I think!!!

I just love this sunset!!!

So the big dilemma was should I buy the blue home jersey

or should I buy the white away jersey!!

So the way i solved this was to buy both shirts for a total cost of 200pesos…16 dollars for two shirts…I love Mexico!!

So after a day that was still a good day finished off by watching live hockey game from Vancouver!!!
