After hauling ass all day long on the Mexican Autopistas, when you get to the US it feels like everyone is driving in slow motion.

Actually, I flirted with disaster, and kept that pace up till San Antonio, then laid off a bit. I was passing some work vehicles parked off the road in the opposite lane when I heard what sounded like an explosion. I glanced in my mirror and saw one of the parked vans, folded in half, and in the air doing a barrel roll. I hope Trice was right and the semi-driver fell asleep and clocked an empty parked vehicle. If someone was in it, I don't hold much hope for them. A sobering moment.

Likewise when the Conquistadors came to Mexico there were comments that the Mexican indigenous folks had built better cities than the Europeans were able to construct.

Learning in Europe also came to halt for a few centuries during the Dark Ages. Coincided with the rise of the church just as the middle eastern dark ages coincided with the rise of religion there. Europe had an enlightenment when learning was revered again. It seems the USA is going away from that to some degree. It comes and goes, it ebbs and flows.

But at least the monks brought us stinky cheese and warm beer. So not all was lost ;)

Good point. In the case of the rise of the Church in Europe and the rise of Islaam the Middle East and North Africa the religious leaders realized that knowledge was power. They of course, preferred to keep that power to themselves. Not much changes.

Now, let's return to Mexico.
