We just completed our second night of driving south through Mexico and are having a wonderful time. We had dinner Friday night with our friends Kay and Riley at their home north of Tucson. I was great to see them.
Saturday we headed south and entered Mexico at Nogales. The paperwork and processing seemed relativley simple although of course Duke’s Spanish language skills really helped. The roads were good, all four lane and very straight across the desert. We did see three or four accidents. The countryside was much the same as Arizona and I passed the time learning more Spanish from road signs. One very important new word is Topes. It means speed bump. When you come to a pedestrain crossing or small town it is VERY important to slow down for the Topes.
We spent the night Saturday night in San Carlos, a little town on the coast. From the lookout point outside town the sunset over the Sea of Cortez was stunning.
Today we drove south to Culiacan. Finding our hotel was bit of a challenge since there are no street signs and asking directions at Home Depot didn’t really help, but we are here. We have a modern reasonably priced room with free Internet and are off to dinner soon.
