Taking a bunch of kids and a few adults on a Mission Trip. Should be loads of fun. You might notice my being gone for awhile, but if I stumble on to a cybercafe - I'll drop a line - have not figured out a good way to get pictures from the digital camera to the cybercafe computer yet, without a big fuss.
Countdown t-24 or about that.

CI Thanks

Patio - last time I bought the shrimp cocktail from a local street guy - (well last time for that)!!

Quinn - I'll get pictures up - just bought another 128 megs just to make sure I have enough storage. Also thinking about taking my SLR with b&w film - but I'm not sure about packing it around.

Reminds me of when I washed up in Greece. Was walking through a park with my pack (travelling alone) and saw a guy selling ears of roasted corn. Though, "Hey, a gen-yoo-ine local snack food. I think I'll buy one." Completely inedible; couldn't even chew the stuff. Apparently it was akin to panhandlers selling pencils when begging isn't allowed.

You know..my recent adventure I picked up one of those disposable cameras....due to the whole..I dont think I want to pack around my good stuff...and I was sorely dissappointed with myself....glad I had brought the other one at least though...it wasnt all that bad, and better than nothing, still now, I want to go back on a photographic journey to make up for it...humph.
Always be prepared!

Nice pics, husker. Great to see your friends.

San Quintín Valley is known in Mexico for internal temporary migration. Loads and loads of very poor people from the South are brought there for the crops. Very hot and miserable wages. Towns and settlers are relatively new, I believe.

I don't know if there's a cybercafe over there. Could be, since there are tourist resorts nearby. Or perhaps, in the town of El Rosario, a few miles south.

There are a couple cybercafes in Cardenas and SanQuintin. Funny thing is in the past when we go through a checkpoint and ask where we've been and say Cardenas, they never question it. So we asked why and they said the color of the dirt on the bus was a dead-give-away.

My friends are Sarita and Manuel & Dany

Used to live in bakersfield for while. Hated it, struck it from my memory bank. Stinks of oil smoke and natural gas. right out of a Lary Mcmurtry book.
hope you get some time to go over to Sea of Cortez and just sploosh around and look at the fish. Drive carefully and may your mission accomplish everything you planned.

HI, Husker! I hadn't seen this until this morning and I've been wondering where you are! In Mexico! A mission? Good for you & the folks from Washington that you're bringing with you. There are a few churches in GH that send missions to Sonora. It is a life-changing event for some kids (and adults).

I was just getting ready to start a thread on a place in Mexico that I've wanted to see... I'll post the link here once I get it started.

Be safe and good driving! Vaja con Dios.
