    Starting in SW MO or NW AR area l travelled across to Texas (mainly boring & hot) to the border at Laredo/Nuevo Laredo.mexico-map.gif (900×686) (geology.com)
    Crossing was a hassle, the Mexicans acted like it was their 1st day on the job!
    Got into Mexico & travelled towards the east coast, & spent a night in Cuidad Victoria after passing through Monterray, nothing exciting on this leg of the trip to report!
    Tampico on the coast was a nice enough place to spend some time, but l wouldn't recommend going out or your way to visit.
    Next stop San Lois de Potasi which was a nice ride, but still not spectacular.
    My goal was to visit the annual festival at San Miguel de Allende (not on above map) just for no other reason that l saw it online just by chance......Now that place at that time of year l can recommend if you don't mind being kept awake for 3 days & nights solid because those Mexicans do like their fireworks goin off 24/7.
    I stayed there maybe 5 days at an American ladies Airbnb & enjoyed strollin the streets & chattin with friendly locals.
    The ride back l headed almost due north up the mountain range Sierra Madre Oriental; Sierra Madre Mountain System (Central/North America) | LAC Geo
    All in all a good experience that took me to gain more confidence of such a trip, & l never had any problems with any people while there. (other than general inefficiency by border patrol officials!)
    I returned via the Texas coast & stayed on S San Padre island & passed through Corpus Christie , Victoria & Galveston before reaching LA & heading due north back home....Approx 3500mls all told. 43328097_905284742994370_429868789731950592_n.jpg 43333376_905285022994342_4302383798282092544_n.jpg 43350170_905285306327647_8455573218818785280_n.jpg 43371643_905284899661021_3665426211116417024_n.jpg
