We did about 170 kms (105 miles) on the toll road, at a cost of 380 pesos ($30.40). Again, toll highways in Mexico are fairly expensive, but in this situation it probably saved at least an hour of driving time versus taking the free road, plus less gasoline, and less wear and tear on Sherman and his driver!
Yesterday's drive 288 kms (179 miles)
Nice scenic drive though. Here's some pics taken from the toll highway...
Stopped at the big Soriana grocery store in Sahuayo. Didn't need that much because we leave for Vegas next Wednesday and we'll be gone for a week, but managed to pick up a few good deals. Couldn't resist a couple more boneless ribeye steaks for 32 pesos ($2.56) each!
Arrived at Hacienda Contreras about 3:00pm. Walked around and said hello to everybody, some people we have met before and there are also a couple of new faces. Seven other RV's here, so that's nice to see.
Originally, we weren't planning on arriving until today. The campers had planned a dinner at a nearby restaurant for last night, and we ended up going with them. It was a bit of a special thing because they had pre-ordered rabbit to be the main course. I've never had rabbit before. It was okay, but there's not very much meat on those little critters. Why not just have chicken?
From the left, clockwise...Ruth, Linda, Barb, Madeline, Pete, Sal, Heinz, Uli, Bonnie, Jim, Dale, Judy.
Nice view out the restaurant window.
Sat around with some of the campers last night. Had a nice heated discussion about Canadian politics. Maybe we'll talk about religion or abortion tonight!
