Up early to do a whole day of driving to Texas...and what an awakening at Dan's house for Marcos.

While he was doing what needed to be done, he spotted a scorpion walking on the bathroom floor and sliding itself under the shower mat. With the expected shock of a City boy we rushed to the bedroom and told Veronika to kill it!!

By the time Veronika arrived...it had disappeared. Dan said we should have crushed it, but it wasn't in our natural reaction! We see a scorpion and run...

Dan showed us his office at Phoenix and at 9am we started our trip...mile after mile after mile...for 550 miles, taking us through Arizona, New Mexico, along the Mexican frontier at El Paso and into Texas.

We have also "lost" two hours as we have passed two time zones in total, so by the time we arrived at the motel it was already 10pm.

Tomorrow we will get up early and continue another 500 miles to San Antonio. The best part is that in Texas the speed limit is 80 miles an hour so it should be faster. This is the top speed limit we have encountered, and it is the first state where we have seen a significant number of State Troopers and Police on the roads stopping people, and one inspection by Border Police in the middle of no where.

Cheerio!
