Tequila, Mexico

 (JPG) Tequila, Mexico (192,765 bytes) ( 1,243 x 1,121 )
Tequila, both the city and the drink, had their origins in western Mexico in the 16th century. The red volcanic soil surrounding Tequila is particularly well suited to the growing of blue agave, and more than 300 million plants are harvested each year. Annual production is around 200 million liters: about half is consumed in Mexico, and of the remainder, 80% is exported to the US. The image was acquired October 11, 2001, covers an area of 16.8 by 18.6 km, and is located at 20.9 degrees north latitude, 103.8 degrees west longitude.
