I asked a girl walking by, she said I was taking photos of a Mango tree, I hope so, it sure would suck if I put the wrong name below the photo of this plant.

I was trying to walk up this small mountain at the entrance to Pie de la Cuesta tourist area and found this Mango Tree.
Mangos on tree just up the big hills at entrance to Pie de la Cuesta, Acapulco, Mexico.
I read this book by Lonely Planet on how to be a Travel Writer, not much meat to the book, but the one emphatic notion I remembered, truly the book in a nutshell was to not be cliché.
This is Pie de la Cuesta or Playa Luces north of Acapulco about 7 dolars in taxi or 50 cent by bus, about 30-45 minutes. The land on the strip faces the setting sun better than in Acapulco.
I would suppose a photo of the Sunset is very cliché, while a photo of some Mangos are semi-cliché.
I was trying to climb this small mountain that would have a great view of Pie de la Cuesta so I could adequate explain this beach area, I did not make it to the top as I am just too fat from the easy life of Thailand and Philippines.
In a way it is nice to be in more difficult country like Mexico where I need to walk more because of the inherent difficulty of the culture, or the just general lack of providing economical services and goods. There is about five times less to buy here in Mexico than in Asia, there is five times less enterprise, there is just not much being done, sort of stagnant.
Up at the entrance to Pie they are selling used clothing, the same as in Kpalime, Togo, interesting how the two culture are very similar in development.
