The Cult of VW Is Alive and Well South of The Border

By Landfall @landfallvoyages

Mexico’s love affair with the VW Bug has been going on since the 50′s and the fact that Volkswagen stopped making them (dear God, why??) has only made them more popular than ever. We got to wander through the 3rd Annual Riviera Nayarit VW Festival, snapping pictures, gawking like tourists, and having a generally all around good time. Steve Swihart, this post is for you :-).
