Only In Mexico....

I know Jay Leno would die to have this kind of pictographic info for his show (in english... )

So this is a little compendium of funny signs, situations or WTF pics.... but only in México.

So if you have some to share from your trip to México or while passing by my México, post it.

FYI we Mexicans always find the easy and funny side of bad things. We laugh of our own death, misery, poverty, etc.

But only because we at the end find the way to get away with our own.

hope you find it amusement,
(Since many of the pics have to do it with SPANISH TYPOS, which results very funny for we Mexicans, then try to learn some spanish, since will provide you much more fun while you ride thru México).

to begin,
if you do not speak a damn thing of spanish, there are bars that solve the problem for you. so just need to raise your hand...




or if you decide is time to take some fresh air but do not want to resing on drinking...
here is your solution.... a mobile bar





and if by any chance you are riding along any road and see a trailer accident, stop by and see if you can help, perhaps you can get a six pack thanks.

this is a TECATE Beer trailer accident, and people around are handy to carry all they can get before the trooper gets there.



If you get hungry do not hesitate to stop at this food stand. Is less than 1 dollar!!!


but before you eat, please wash your hands....





and after a good meal, you may want to get your self a good coffee, but be careful where you stop to get it.... you might end eating more...!




at the end of your day journey, you will want to rest, so there are plenty of interactive hotels. (River Hotel)



later you need to post your trip log, so look for a internet club or CLUD? ...


MORE LATER

Try to get a hotel with CCTV monitoring for the sake of your bike




Is easy to have something to eat, some local traditional dish, just read the english menu.



if shit happends, and you are out of gas, you can find a ride back to your bike after you get to pemex station.

Devils Backbone

This was taken near Durango, MX. I was about 50 miles into the ride from Durango to Mazatlan when my rear ring gear bearing went out. I hired these guys who had just put a new?(NO LIGHTS) box on their pick up to haul me down to Mazatlan for repairs.. I agreed to pay 2000 peso's. Before we took off the brothers both did the sign of the cross, pumped the brakes to get the hydralic fluid going and off we went. After we were about 20 miles, I was asked if I wanted to stop for weed, but told them nothing until were were safe in Mazatlan. Another 20 miles and they stopped and asked if I wanted to get some snort, again I told them nothing until we reached Mazatlan. After another 20 miles I finally agreed to buy them 2 cervaza's, nothing more.. We did reach Mazatlan safely, tired to unload the bike but they had pulled the keys to make sure before we unloaded at Pemex they were paid. Just good business.
