We joined Denise and Kelly the next day and drove through an incredible thunder storm that threatened to flood the roads. In the city we shared a parting meal and said our good byes. Lots of hugs and kisses, one hot long one between Ryan and Kelly, and we were off, travelers all, each to our own horizon
If you ever go to San Luis Potosi you will see innumerable churches, schools, fountains, parks, plazas, arches, and monuments, all very nice with some being remarkable. If you like that kind of stuff your head will be swimming with the wealth of architecture and the abundance of it all. But for us, all those historic wonders pale in comparison to the monumental friendliness and generosity of our Tres Chicas Fuertes and their hospitable family and friends.
Every home we visited we heard the same beautiful words, "Mic Casa Su Casa (My home is your home)!" And these people really meant it. They were our Mexican families and treated us so. Sara's mom Nancy opened her home to us and gave us a comfortable room to sleep in. Pita's mom Pita made us the most incredible meal of the trip, Enchilada Potosini with tons of rice, beans, and dessert while her father Martin Sr. filled our glasses many times with the best Tequila and Mexican beer. All the while Martin Jr. filled in every moment with conversation and smiles. Imelda's Father promised us his house anytime and for his, and all of their's, we really appreciated the true friendliness that exists here in Mexico.
During one of our frequent wandering through the city Ryan discovered this insight:
Ryans: Bob, do you realize that we are always surrounded by packs of young girls?
Bob: I know buddy, I know. We are on a roll!
Lesson from Uncle Bob: If everyone practiced "Mi casa Su casa" the world would be a better place.
