I couldn't sleep again, the damn chickens/rooster or whatever keeps screaming next to my window at 3am until dawn. Next morning I had chicken for breakfast.
The balmy and steaming night in Mazatlan didn't help me with any sleep. Next morning I hitched a ride with Dutch on his Jeep Cherokee he bought for $2000 in California. The snake bending road was twisty, turning, ups and downs, and Mexican aren't exactly great drivers. We stopped for fuel and a nice Mexico girl served up Coca Cola for 1 peso and some tacos for lunch, suprisingly my stomach was behaving okay considering some horrific story I have heard from other travellers about Mexican food. As the load speakers of the Jeep blasting "Californiacation" by the Red Hot Chilly Peppers, I enjoy the scenery of the Mexican Pacific Coast. First stop was San Blas, a fishing village, we stayed overnight. Then on to Sayulita, which is full of Gringos escaping northern winters. Mexico depend heavily on tourism of US and Canada during winter season, this year's Sept. 11 really slowed down the pace, however this was better for me as more hotels to choose from.
