I'm Home From Mexico

Carolina and I are now home from Mexico. I have all kinds of things I want to blog about related to my trip. I went down last Monday, January 1st, and we drove back starting Sunday the 8th until about 8:30 Monday evening. The total drive time from Durango, Mexico to Searcy, Arkansas was about 24 hours.

One of the most striking things to me about Mexico's terrain is the fantastic mountains. They generally aren't that big compared to the large mountain chains in the USA, but they are very sharp, as if these huge rocks were just thrust up through the surface.

This last picture was an important moment. It's a view from Nuevo Laredo, Mexico across the Rio Grande to Laredo, Texas on the other side. We sat in line for what seemed like forever, but we finally made it across.


  1. so you drove down there alone and drove back with your wife all in one week? I'm impressed if you did!

  2. Did you go to Marti's in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico? Most beautiful store in all of Mexico.

  3. Well, we flew down and then drove back in a car that Carolina's dad is giving to us. So we only made the drive once. :-)

    We didn't stop in Marti's, I'm sorry to say. We were exhausted, as by the time we got to Nuevo Laredo, we had been in the car for 9 hours. Maybe next time...
