The storm hit landfall late Tuesday evening, and although we have no idea what it's like on the coast, we wouldn't want to be there! This morning, we are getting lots of rain however the center of the storm is now heading north and so we will be spared the worst of it. There is still concern about the amount of rainfall though and inland areas are warning of flash floods and mudslides.
We are south east of Guadalajara and the storm is now tracking north.
On to other things...I came across a website that has interesting stories about life in Mexico. If anybody is interested in reading what life is like outside of the bad things that the media presents to the rest of North America, then maybe you can enlighten yourself by hearing about the good things.
I know most of you are learning about the good side of Mexico through our travels and hopefully you're learning that it's not quite the way most of the media presents it to be. Yes, there is a problem...but it involves the drug gangs against each other and the officials and it does not affect the daily lives of the vast majority of people living and traveling here. From the sounds of it, RV travel in Mexico is going to be up this year compared to last. Maybe it's because the last couple of years Texas and Florida have had less than ideal winter weather!
Anyway, we will continue to present both the good and the bad of travel in Mexico as we see it, and we hope you'll continue to follow along.
Most of our readers have not yet voted for our route choice next month. So far we've only received about 35 votes in total, and we average over 500 individual readers every day...so c'mon you people who we never hear from...it will only take a couple of minutes for you to make a choice...
Thanks for participating!
