It's all about the peopleNovember 7, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C
We realize that traveling by bike makes it really easy to get in touch with local people and it's actually one of the best parts of our trip.
This morning started with a round of pickle ball, a game similar to tennis, but on a smaller court, a slower ball and different racquets. It's good fun and easy to learn. Thanks to Barry, Clark, Pam and Nancy for letting us play with you :)
After that kind of technical exercise, we went back on the bikes. Our next stop was "Cowpattys", a bar along the road selling mainly hot dogs and beer (which we - of course - tried). Memo, the guy who works there is well known in the area. He works in the bar for several months, saves up money and goes bike riding the rest of the year. He went to Panama before, so he helped us planning our route in mainland Mexico already.
At the bar, we met Ron who lives in Puertocito with his wife Susan. He first showed us the hot springs in Puertocito and then invited us for a chat to his house. His wife Susan and him are lovely people. They offered us snacks, sandwiches and water to support us on our trip. They also gave us some advice of where to set up our camp for the night. So we said goodbye and camped some kms further South at "Christina's", a restaurant right at the beach.
Right there, we reached 5000km on the road.
