BUG THAT CROSSED CHAPALA

Post by koimaster » September 11th 2020, 11:51pm

It all started when one of the ′′ Volkswagen ′′ suppliers wanted to advertise the brand by performing this amazing feat.
The charismatic and ordinary bōchō crossed the Lake of Chapala in 1968 with the help of a German engineer, who after some modifications to the car made this possible.

The event announcement was made through a local diary on Friday, September 6, 1968 and the performance would be a couple days later.

In total, it was 24 km that traveled, the first 18 were the most difficult as they were the deepest, are those between the town of San Luis Soyatlán and Ajijic; the other 6 km traveled by border the lake from Ajijic to Chapala.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
