Feb 10, 2009 - Hanging with the locals

I've been doing my journal entries on a daily basis in microsoft word since we don't have wi-fi every day. It was my hope to cut and paste on those rare occasions when we did have internet so that I could save myself some time & effort. Well, I had a great entry done for todays tour of San Rafael and don't you know it, I can't find it anywhere within this darn computer.....I've been sitting here for the last couple of hours trying to get the entries and photos caught up ( and missing pool & margarita time ) So, rather then going into...

We were only five miles to the end of the bad roads, although they were still two-lane and pot-holed, at least they were straight and flat(ish)! A note here to anyone thinking to drive this way...
