A days ride with Antonio, my friend from Mexico City. Dieserto de los Leones means 'desert of lions'. It's not a desert, and obviously there are no lions, but it's a rewarding get away from the noise of the city. Mexico City is based in a valley so going out is going up. The first half of the day we climbed out of the city. Once in the forest the road goes up to a monastery at the highest point of the hill. Along the way there are some spectaculair houses. On the way back into the city it went fast downhill. We took a break at anbandoned waterfall before rolling back into the safety of Condesa.
