Adiós Mexico

January 20, 2012

It has been quite the motorcycle trip so far and we’ve only traveled through one country (and some of the US).  I wanted to mention a few little things about Mexico before we leave:

The Oxxo is Mexico’s Sev (aka 711), Pemex is the only gas station (government owned),

and there were a lot of men in uniforms with big guns (didn’t want to take a picture too close, hence the bad quality).

There were way than enough topazes (aka speed bumps), dogs running around everywhere (never with a collar), hot sauce and tortillas served with every meal, and quite a few major construction sites we passed – as in here where the road is completely missing.

There were countless sparkling rivers and beautiful green fields.

Matt and I saw tons of people piled in to the back of trucks and met cool and interesting people along the way on the road and in the hostels (usually having a certain aroma).

Highlight of Mexico: The beaches- Punta Zicatela in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca being my favorite, with Playa La Ropa in Zihautinejo, Guerrero as a close second.

Eventually, I’ll see more of Mexico.  I’d especially like to visit Mexico City and a few spots in the Yucatán.

    Can’t wait to hear about the next country. Which one is next and is Matt updating the original map on this blog? Looks like Honduras or Belize. Did you get to travel up near Cancun? I’ve been trying to follow the route but I know it’s been changed due to your schedule to be in Panama by February. We miss you and wish we were traveling on our bike with you and Matt. lym

    Matt hasn’t been updating the map. The plan changes so often that it’s hard to keep up with it. We’ve just been getting to a place, deciding how long we wanna stay, and looking ahead on the map to make the plan for the next day then.. Basically we skipped a lot of the original plan. I’ve mentioned the big places we’ve been to, so we didn’t go to Cancun (besides, I’ve been there before:).
    I was a little freaked out by the police at first, but I got use to it.. There was one in front of the Burger King yesterday. I don’t know why- apparently those burgers need guarding. ha
