A day (or two) in Mexico City

From the Trip: North America in our Camper Van!

Journal Entry Highlight

Yo Buddy! So glad to catch up on your adventures - Nik and I were really impressed by what we learned about the Mayan, to be honest, *much* more so than what we have seen in S.A. from the Incas. They were incredibly advanced, enjoy the sites! Mexico City sounds great! Will have to go another time!

Nice site. We will check it periodically to see what you're up to. We really liked the pictures of the pyramids in Egypt. See you guys in 15 minutes. Oaxaca, Oaxaca.

Very cool guys. I would have loved to come with you the rest of the trip. I love this kind of stuff. Maybe not the scorpion in my clothes, but all the gardening... love it. hmm yummy fresh herbs.

So from now on if we hear the expression from you guys that you're in a "Guadalajara mood" we should get you some food and some maps?? Sounds pretty easy to me!!

Nice job! We got drunk and hung over in G-town and nearly got towed when the greaser wouldn't start (wire loose) and nearly had a nightmare in Guadalejara too. But instead we had a lot of tequila and a "level 8" driving experience (with practice we finished the game). I hope the cooling system can survive the strong instinct _not_ to turn on the defroster when it's already screaming hot! Love a diesel.

Thanks for the very informative piece on tequila! I'm assuming that over the years they've cut out the worker bathing part of the process...

From: Sloan

(March 29th, 2008)

Oh my God are you serious that they bathed to start the fermentation process!?!? The assumption is that they are covered in bacteria...?? Wow...and it tastes good eh..? What`s the deal with the worm?

I have just caught up reading about your journey. It sounds and looks like you and Michelle are having an incredible adventure. I was deeply moved by your encounter with the whales thanks to your video. I can only imagine what it must have felt like actually being there. Rob nice plant pictures.... Hope you are feeling better

My bro was flattened by a case of the OJ street vendors before, was out for a week, but you had no problems? Must be your superior genetic makeup. hehe I`m glad Rob is doing better!!

Glad to see you made it this far with little trouble. I started on a similar trip over 30 years ago, headed to Ensenada on a motorcycle, but made it only to SanFrancisco before a serious breakage. But what a spectacular trip you are having. 2 questions - have you scrounged any used oil so far? is Wilson named after the basketball in the film Castaway? ;-)

From: Sloan

(March 24th, 2008)

Amazing photos. And I`m sure disconcerting check stops, I was uncomfortable enough when on a public bus with minimal inspection. Glad you guys are having no troubles though. And I vote Cacti.

WOW! Pablito and Mama Sita...smart whales to choose to spend a 1/2 hour with such interesting humans as the 4 of you! I think this will be one of those forever kind of memories that you all will treasure.. I'm going to treasure just having seen the photos!

From: Megs

holy crap, huge yet beautiful whales. what an amazing experience for you to be able to scratch their backs. looks like your having fun

From: Sloan

(March 24th, 2008)

I cannot even beleive how lucky you guys are to have had that experience. I am certain that words cannot describe how impressed and overwhelmed you guys were, it`s impossible to relate! That is beyond amazing, so happy for you guys!

5126 kms: Playa Coyote- Would you like me to pee on your foot?

I knew Gilles would provide some excitement and laughs for you while travelling but I had no idea he would provide me with this kind of a howl this afternoon... loved the story and I can really appreciate it spite of my laughter how much pain he must have been in as I too know his high pain threshold. Glad that the tweezers on the Swiss Army knife came in handy. You all definitely now have a Baja beach visit with a lot of funny and slightly painful stories to it!

From: Sloan

(March 24th, 2008)

hahaahah How funny is that that traveling turns the statement `Would you like me to pee on your foot?` into just another regular conversation, another day at the beach. Lovely!! It`s also the same treatment for jelly fish, but the pain isn`t quite that requiring tequila.
