A comment on yesterday's post from "Anonymous" (but signed Dee) asks...
Kevin and Ruth, what will you do about the termination of Sherman's RV permit when you both leave Mexico and leave Sherman behind? The Mexican government now checks all that by computer when you leave the country, whether by land or air.
Well, we don't need to do anything. Sherman has a 10 year permit to remain in Mexico. There is nothing stopping us from flying out of the country and returning. And I do not believe the Mexican government checks much of anything when you leave the country. Our daughter left a few weeks ago and all she did was hand in her tourist permit to the airline person who also takes the tickets and hop on the plane. Nothing was "checked" to see if she had driven into the country and left a vehicle behind.
(On edit, I should qualify those statements. I believe that if you only have the 180 day RV vehicle permit that legally you are not supposed to leave the country without your vehicle. I cannot find confirmation of this, and even if I did it would all be in Spanish. However the majority of Mexico travel sites in English do state this. Would it be enforced? Probably not, but who knows? I am confident that in our situation we are doing things the proper way.)
Didn't do much of anything yesterday. Lots of sitting around reading. But, in the afternoon, one of the weekender couples showed up. We had met this couple here last weekend, and they have bought an older motorhome. One of the very few Mexican motorhomers! It's a 1994 Itasca and he was asking me some questions about it. He was especially interested in our solar panel setup. It was fun trying to talk about all of that stuff in Spanish!
They invited us over for a family dinner later in the afternoon! Turned out it was a little birthday celebration...
I'm not usually a big cake eater, but this birthday cake was delicious! Poor Ruth couldn't have any because of her gluten allergy!
Singing Spanish birthday songs. Notice our Spanish/English dictionary on the table. It got lots of use!
