Basswood in Guadalajara

“Guadalajara is the capital and largest city of the Mexican state of Jalisco, and the seat of the municipality of Guadalajara. The city is in the central region of Jalisco in the Western-Pacific area of Mexico. With a population of 1,495,189 it is Mexico’s fourth most populous municipality.” Wikipedia


Basswood and his friends on the Fungibus have been in Guadalajara the last few days.  He said they went to a school and taught the kids about mushrooms and the kids were all excited to learn all they could about fungi.  Today they are going to get on the fungibus and head toward Mexico City.  They have several stops planed before they finally get to the Fungi Academy in Guatemala.

Fixing the Fungibus

A few days ago the fungibus broke down and Basswood and his friends spent the day working on getting it fixed.  One of his fellow fungi travelers blogged about the experience.  In the blog post she refers to Basswood as Tilo which is another word for the Basswood tree.

Basswood is planning on traveling on the Fungi Bus to the Fungi Academy in Guatemala.  There he plans on learning more about fungi and working with the other staff to teach others about the benefits fungi offer us.  Learn more about Basswood and his adventures on the Fungi Bus on Basswood’s Blog.
