I had an early rise this morning and headed South on a toll road that cost $3.00 for probably 100 Km.
While travelling through one of the small towns I saw a "burrito stand" so I pulled over and a nice young couple served me a coke and a burrito with beef and some other fixings. It was very good and it didn't upset my stomach at all.
The terrain changed dramatically, as it became hilly and there were pine trees everywhere. What also changed is the building styles, as suddenly there were log cabins everywhere. This is not something I would expect in Mexico.
One interesting service in Mexico is the drive through convenience store. In this area the Tecate store seems to be the most common
I made to Creel which is near the Copper Canyon, and checked into the Casa Margaritas Guest House, where I have private room and bath, free internet, and dinner and breakfast for $20.00 Very interesting place. My room is at the end of a very long hall.
I have had a lot of time to think about what I am doing in Mexico, with plans to go into Guatemala, Belize and Honduras and I have come to the conclusion that there is a level of stress that is continuous. Be it language, food, lifestyle, poverty . .perhaps all of them and more. So I have decided to ride North starting tomorrow morning. I plan to be back in the USA and then will decide what route I take to get back to my car in Cuming, GA.
I am somewhat disappointed as this has been a dream of mine for many years, but there are so many other things left to be done.
Distance Travelled: 255 Km
