China to Cerralvo, N.L. Day Three

Yesterday brought more rain but it finally cleared up and the sun came out. We spent quite a nice afternoon in town doing a little shopping. Went to the local supermercado and bought some fresh peanuts, a bottle of vodka and some tostadas. So far, still sticking to the diet plan. Last night I had a great dinner, a large salad with chicken and a glass of wine.

Sat outside and watched the sunset.

Came back in and finished the night watching the telenovela, "Fuego en la Sangre". Wow, so much can happen in just an hour. These Mexican soap operas last for only a year or less and in the states it is the same story for over 40 years. Remember, Like the sands of time so are the Days of Our Lives. Still on TV. This morning I got up around 6 a.m. and had a cup of java before heading out for an hour run. The only gym in China is a municipal gym and it is closed for the summer. After running, I dumped the grey water, filled the fresh water and washed the Pathfinder. It is sure to rain today!
I forgot to mention that there is a hotel here in the state park. It is a concession and very well down. There is a fishing tournament this weekend and they are booked solid. Here at the ciber café after gassing up the truck. Again, not the friendliest group of people in Mexico. A bunch of sour pusses. Taking off this morning for General Bravo, Los Herrera, Melchor Ocampo and stopping for the day in Cerralvo. Cerralvo is the birthplace of Roberto Gonzalez Barrera, the owner and founder of Maseca, today Gruma. If you eat Mission Foods tortillas, tostadas and snacks in the states, thank Lic. Gonzalez.Lots of nature here, rabbits, jack rabbits, deer, birds of all kinds, and insects. I have seen dung beetles on TV but not in action. Here is one along with a road runner.
I will try and update today from Cerralvo. Have a good one and stop praying that we have rain in Nuevo Leon, enough already!
