Thank you, Tom. Staying at your place was a fine way to start the trip. Whoever recommended taking the 'Back Door' into Mexico was spot on. Heading South today, there was a lot of traffic : ) Then I parked by this church to hit the ATM up for pesos. I tried to buy a bottle of water in an OXXO and the girl wouldn't take my $20 peso note. She took a $50 peso and gave me $30 change. I thought about that all day and couldn't figure it out until now. I had Cuban Pesos in my wallet and inadvertently tried to pass one off on her. No wonder she didn't smile.
