Hola Mexico

I am at my wit’s end trying to arrange text and photos. In edit mode, all looks good. But as soon as I click “publish”, it’s a mess. I am pulling my hair out, but I hop you enjoy anyway!

We crossed the border very early this morning without any problems.

The process takes about an hour because we have to get a permit for the car. Otherwise it would be much faster. We had a list of things we were bringing into the country, but nobody seemed interested and we were waved on at the several points where we could have declared them.

We’ve driven this route before, but today it seemed particularly spectacular. IMG_2311So this post will be more photos than words. From flat land along the Rio Grande into mountains, then onto a wide plateau with farmland stretching to more mountains along the horizon. Then climbing into those mountains.

From fog to sun with heavy clouds and mountains poking through.

Quite a few vehicles heavily loaded, many pulled over by police. We wonder what this is all about. People returning from the States for the holidays? It seems a bit early. Shopping on Black Friday??

We are now in the city of Matehaula, at about 1500 meters (4600 feet). Another 800 meters to climb tomorrow. We hope to arrive in Guanajuato early afternoon.

Christmas decorations are going up…snowmen (!), Santas, boughs, baubles and lights.
