I was in Mexico City last week. It was interesting seeing the difference in gas prices from one zone of the largest American city. Also the simple fact that everyone seems to have a new car. According to statistics about 75% of all new cars are financed in Mexico. Interest rates for cars as well as homes has dropped considerably over the years. Good trip. I left Thursday at 7 p.m. and took a flight the next day at 5 p.m. coming back home. The only problem was that it was Friday and airport traffic is always heavy not to mention the cold, rain and fog in Monterrey that caused us to circle for over half an hour. Free cocktails and snacks as always though which makes for a relaxing flight.
Trumpa Loompa has been on a roll with his executive orders. We all know that other presidents have done more in their first few weeks but not orders that affect the whole planet. Sounds weird, doesn't it? The whole planet. He hits hard when he thinks he's winning but he's a sore loser. His sidekick KellyAnne likes circumvent questions by using the comparison tactic. Mention something Trump has done and she'll bring up Clinton or Obama. Quick talking salespersons in my book, Polls are running at 40% out the door after just two weeks to impeach the bastard. I've said it all along. How could anyone vote for a man that said the things about women that spewed from his mouth? Man or woman, it's not acceptable. KellyAnne likes to use the Clinton line. Clinton should have been impeached for his affair inside the White House.
We have a couple of fun trips coming up. Juan's birthday is in February. I booked a flight and hotel for Mazatlan next weekend. We leave on Thursday and come back the following Monday. We are staying at that bright yellow hotel that is next to the rv park on Isla de la Piedra. There will be a potluck dinner. I don't know if any of you are staying at RV2 but give me a shout out so we get together. Contessa is putting the potluck together so it is sure to be a real wingding.
Spring break isn't until April 7th for us. I really wanted to go to New Mexico with the rv but we have decided not to. With all the uproar over visas and border checkpoints taking place it is best that we just stay at home. Gas is more expensive here this year but we have had years in the U.S. and Canada when it was much more than in Mexico today.
San Luis is a state nearby that we can get to easily. We have ventured off the roads a couple of times and have found such jewels as Aquismon and Xilitla along with Guadalcazar. We plan to go up into the mountains and just take any old road we find in hopes we find overnight spots. We've never had a problem but I get picky because I want nice places not a gas station or restaurant. I guess I could do a bit of online exploring.
More to come as we get closer to our trips. We just finished Christmas but I feel it's time to hit the road again. Stay tuned.
