What a morning and it’s not even 9 am yet! We are driving through Mexico’s mountains. In our move to Mexico, we have officially crossed the border into this unknown land ;-) Our friend Bill, who came to meet us at the border, is playing with Sawyer. I think Sawyer found a new friend.
We crossed the border at 3 am. Funny story here. It was early so Brad’s brain wasn’t in Spanish mode yet. I was communicating better than him and that made me feel smart ;-) The border patrol was checking our boxes and we were afraid they might pull the vehicle apart. Fortunately, they just wanted money for coke and pizza. Brad finally understood and gave them $20. After that, we were on our way!
It’s 11:30 am and the last hour has been exciting. First of all the roads here are different. In small towns, there are speed bumps, aka topes, on the highways. We didn’t see one before it was too late and we lost a couple of straps and our aluminum bar equalizing the pull of the straps. A few boxes were crushed. By the looks, we didn’t break or lose anything so that’s good. Then Sawyer got sick to his stomach and barfed. We made a fast pit stop and got some fresh air and did some cleanup. He seems to be fine now. Feeding him potato chips, a cookie, and apple juice for brunch probably was a bad idea.

Ok. It’s Saturday now. I started this blog yesterday morning! I don’t know when we will have Internet so we are at Applebee’s eating breakfast and using their Internet. Yes. Applebee’s in Morelia, Mexico. Anyway, yesterday was a long day in our move to Mexico. Very long. We left Texas at 3 am and got to our destination in our move to Mexico at 9 pm. Todo dia en el camion! All day in the truck!
We need to go. Kids are getting restless. Lots to set up today. Signing off, Tina

A ridiculous amount of coffee was consumed in the process of creating this project. Add some fuel if you'd like to keep me going ;-) Gracias!
