Well we are really in Catemaco but I will cover the road from Cerro Azul to De Alba and the campground at De
Abla.The road was pretty good untill we got close to Tampico.  From there to Cerro Azul it was bad. We only had one scare, a person passing about 5 cars at once. I slowed down and then hit the shoulder.  There was a little shoulder and he had just enough room to go between me and the car he was passing.  You have to be on the watch all the time for people passing, they will pass going up hill on a double yellow line. Other than that it was a good trip.  We did do something that you should not do and that was drive in the dark.   We had just messed around in Cd. Victoria and did not leave there untill noon.  That is to late, as we found out, to leave.  In the dark it is really hard to see the topes. { topes are speed bumps}  There are no stop lights so they use topes to control the speed of vehicles.  Was all set to use the new pool that we had seen them putting in last year.  Well that didn't happen,  it was so dirty that it had tadpoles swimming around in it and was very pretty green. Bonnie was bummed as she had been waiting all day to go swimming.  So we took off the next morning to go to De Abla on the costa esmeralda.  The pool there was supposed to be all fixed up.  But you have to rember this is Mexico.  When we got there the pool was drained and they were cleaning it.  They could not do it during the summer when no one is there.  They have to do it during the busy season.  Go figure.  We had a good stay there anyway.  Bonnie likes it there as we eat with the famaily,  it is only 60 pesos a day per person for breakfest and dinner, that is about 2.50 usd per meal.  I will post some pics now of the park and of other things along the trip. We are going to Palenque tommorow so we will not have internet for a few days.  I guess that is about it for now.  Hope everyone is having a good weekend.  Bonnie and Bill
