    Everything went very well. I flew into Mexico City, and stayed traveling the Country for 8 days.

    I went from Mexico city ( ahhhh ), to Guadalajara, then traveled from there to Puerto Vallarta, and stayed there for a couple of days, and then traveled back from Puerto Vallarta to MX city.

    Then I flew from mx city to TJ, and traveled from TJ to Rosarito beach. I then drove home to CA.

    The highlight of the trip was visiting the Basillica De La Virgen
    De Guadalupe!!

    It was so beautiful, It made me stronger in my faith, and I loved it!!

    So I am back, and after my stomach settles from all the great food I ate, I will post some pics.

    I saw some amazing sights, but home is a great place to be.

    I heard of the news, and I know that many families are suffering a terrible time right now, I pray and hope God eases their suffering.

    To those that still have love ones, or maybe a family member that you don't want to speak to ( or visit ), Go and visit them.

    Go visit someone in a nursing home. Leave all the bs alone, because family is what counts. I know that being away from my love ones, and I am sure deep down, you guys know that also.

    Merry Christmas and God Bless!!!

    The last time I drove to Mexico it cost each one of us $10.00 to appease the police in Juarez. Something about speeding.

    I told them please don't spend my money on wimmin or booze. They got a big kick out of that.

    This was 1976.

    Judging by the places he went, it is obvious that he was muling drugs, guns, or money between the cartels.

    Yes, Mexico is one of the safest places to visit.

    All liberals should find a first class way to get there.

    I don't know about all that, but it was/looked safe when I was there. Meaning I didn't get mugged, kidnapped, or killed. Which could mean, it was kinda safe. Y/N ??

    To be honest, that was always in the back of my mind. I was 'aware' of what was always going on around me.

    I had a good time tho, The main reason was to visit the Church. I always wanted to go and pay my respects to the Virgin. It was a calling, and since we are not getting any younger, I needed to go.

    Would have sucked big time, if I went missing, but thank God, everything was cool. I know it's a dangerous place but I traveled without incident. Glad to be back in the USA. :supergrin:

    Mexico is a freaking hel@ hole. You know it, we know it, and there's no way I'd give them one damn dime. Bunch of dam terroists that come here and have anchor babies.

    Yes I did but I bought one of these~

    You should have seen the Mexicans faces when they saw me pull this bottle out, they where like :shocked:.

    Que pasa con este gringo?

    It worked, one time I got water from the shower, and another time from the faucet, and another time from the well. There was a time when I was staying at a ranch in Puerto Vallarta, and there was no stores near by, I got there late in the night, so I went to the well and got some water. The Katadyn worked.

    I am thankful to because I spent a lot of time on the road, in the country back and forth.

    The mexicans cooked a lot of food for me also, chiliquelias, enchilladas, tacos ( oh boy do they eat a LOT of tacos in D.F. ), Refried beans, meat, more tacos, and pan dulce. I am still stuffed from all the food.

    I got sick once, but took some pills and an alka seltzer, and was good.

    It was a good trip, the Church was so amazing! :supergrin:
