Another mileage sign. We’re six kilometers further away from Puebla and CDMX than we were a kilometer ago.

Another mileage sign. Access is very well controlled along this toll route – there are no actual intersections between Oaxaca 49 and MX 190D.

Yay.

In a kilometer we’ll approach the new Mexico 190D, which for now doesn’t go much of anywhere.

But not before another mileage sign.

For now, 190D is a spur to Lachiguiri. Eventually, it will be the fastest route to Oaxaca.

Exit for MX 190D. Unfortunately, due to a battery mishap, I wasn’t able to get photos of the rest of the drive back to Oaxaca, so this roadtrip loop ends here :( .
