Thanks mate. I'm cruising along with the rust bucket that is my metal tank now and the old clarke tank strapped to the back in case of catastrophic failure. The bike is sometimes taller than me. In Honduras now working on a film about the coffee harvest down here. Cold mountains full of bananas, oranges, and coffee coffee coffee

From the 16 miles of cobblestone road to reach Real de Catorce in San Luis Potosi.

We will be back in Texas in a few days. These are our final moments in Mexico and south of the border. Soon the American dream will reawaken and coffee will again cost $4 a cup and tacos will no longer be 10 pesos.

18 miles :bigeek: imagine how long it took to lay all them stones, had them in my home town until they tarmaced over them, used to rattle the fillings in my teeth riding my pushbike over them.
