Random question: Any tips on eating healthy while still staying on the low cost side of things down here in Mexico? I'm going to get fat at this rate, and that's just no fun at 29, haha.

We all love Huevos Rancheros but the best way to eat healthy in Mexico is to eat a lot of fruit with breakfast. Fruit is cheap and always available in the morning with breakfast. Later in the day you won't see too many vegetables on the plate. During the day, roast chicken and Pollo Asado are cheap, healthy and available everywhere. Flour tortillas taste good, but they are the Mexican equivalent of eating Wonder Bread. Corn tortillas are a little better but don't eat too many of those either.

Suerte!

Bill o'Reilly should crawl into a hole and invite Rush Limbaugh in with him. Then they should pull the dirt in with them and forever shut the F up.

Hey Fork, you are in for very heavy rains in Oaxaca, Tabasco, Campeche, Yucatan, and Chiapas. You aint seen nothing, yet.

Mexico does not like that at all! Anyway, I think the flood of children at this time is substantially different than the people coming over to work. I think the main policy to stop illegal workers is to simply to stop paying people in the US not to work. Is it not amazing that 11,000,000 illegal folks can find work in the US, but millions of our citizens can't?
My understanding is that most of the kids are Central Americans, not Mexicans

Correct, Bill's complaint is why is Mexico letting them pass through. BTW, south of Mexico is far more dangerous than Mexico for normal citizens of those countries, in my opinion.

I remember they used to make an outrigger for mountain bikes so you could ride on the rails. Shouldn't be much different for a moto.

Parting shots

How Mexico has been looking, lately. At least through my lens, anyways...





























And that's that.
Don't go looking into the eye of the swan on the right, too long.

Riding in Mexico

How long would it take to travel from the US border to Guatemala.

I have limited vacation time this year and would like to get as far south as possible. My goal this time out would be to practice traveling in a foreign country and practice my Spanish. Not interested in lots of stop overs. The juice for me is getting comfortable functioning in a foreign country. Thanks- ksop
