I got into Acupulco this afternoon. I am not sure how long I will stay. I got a nice hotel for $16 dollars per night, Coronas are 90 cents and I am right on the beach. I may stay for awhile. I drove from Puebla today. That is east of Mexico city and then down to the coast. I guess I will not go to Panama this trip, since I seem to want to spend some time where ever I go and I figure if I head North now, I still will not get back before the end of April. I love Mexico, both the country and the people. I think I like it better than the United States. They cried when I left Palma Sola and offered me there home any time I want to stay in Mexico.
Saying Goodbye to New Friends in Palma Sola
The head of the Fedarales has become a very good friend of mine and he gave me all of his information if I need anything. He and his girlfriend may come to Colorado.

I also have learned a little Spanish from my friend who is building a house by Mar Azul. She gave me lessons for a week.
Today just East of Mexico City, a motorcycle passed me, he honked and waved and was gone. About 10 miles down the road he lay face down on the pavement. I think he was dead. That was a little unsettling. I got to Mexico City with no map, not much Spanish, and traffic like Tijuana. I considered leaving my bike and getting a plane, but I strapped it up and got directions and finally found my way through the city. The highway to Acupulco is beautiful as is most of Mexico. Very enjoyable ride.
I spent the weekend in Veracruz for Carnival. Mostly celebrated and slept in Teresas truck for a few hours. It was fun, another lifetime experience.
