Didn’t get any sleep Saturday night. None. As expected, the church party went on as a lot of Mexican parties do, right until sunrise. The music was loud and it never stopped.
Even though we didn’t like it, we realize that this is the way people do things here and who are we to try and change their ways. However, when the owner came by yesterday I made sure to comment that we should not have to pay and he agreed. So Saturday night was free. Otherwise, we are paying 100 pesos ($7.80) per night. And we will stay a couple more nights.
Tried to get on the internet yesterday morning with our Mexican TelCel internet stick, and the number still works so that is good, but it comes up as saying the time needs to be recharged. Then tried our Canadian mi-fi, and it works but the roaming fees would be ridiculous. Went on just long enough to check our email and post yesterdays blog.
One email was from Chris, mentioning that they would not be here Saturday afternoon, but would see us Sunday morning, and sure enough they arrived well before lunch. They got their trailer unhitched and suggested we go into town for a bite to eat. So we took Whiskey with us and hopped in their truck. We went to a place that does roast chicken and had a nice lunch. Then, we went to an Oxxo store and put one month (3GB) of usage on our TelCel stick for 500 pesos ($39.00). Then, a bank machine to pick up some pesos. The Canadian dollar is very strong versus the peso right now and so
is currently now cheaper for us than it has ever been. Mexico
The road to Potrero Chico
Back at Potrero Chico, I confirmed that our internet stick works, so we are now back online wherever there is a cell signal. And
has a very good cellular infrastructure. Then, we sat out in the shade and talked for a while but it wasn’t long before it was time for a nap. Managed to grab some shuteye before dinner, so that was good. Mexico
The view from our campsite
Sherman gets the morning shade, but also the hot afternoon sun.
Chris and Juan had brought some steaks for us all and we cooked them up on the Weber. They were delicious! Then we sat outside under the stars for the evening and solved the worlds problems. We enjoyed our visit so much that it was almost midnight before we finally went to bed. Had a great sleep last night, and it looks like another warm sunny day today!
