Crossing the Mexican border

Today we woke up at 6:30 am, to leave early for the border. Our friends Traian and Razvan came to Palm Springs (at 7 am sharp!) to meet us, so we can cross the border together and spend a few days with us.

Around noon, we were at the Mexican border. We didn’t even have to stop, they just waived us through (“Ande, ande”). I did not have to take my helmet off (can you believe that! that’s what I hate the most each time I cross the border on my motorbike), I did not even have to show them my passport! We passed the border in less than a minute, which was great.

Then we crossed through the desert heading to San Felipe, where we were planning to stay for the night. Incredibly hot! I cannot believe I got to miss the rain in Vancouver! After a few hours of riding through the scorching desert, I was quite ready for a cold shower and a good beer.

And yes, we got to San Felipe, and we found the beer place, a little shop on the seawall!

We asked the locals about a good “campo”, and they recommended us Kiki’s, on the beach. Went there, liked it, decided to stay.

We pitched the tents in a palapa (except Traian and Razvan, they had their tent on top of their truck), we had a great dinner, and now we are having a good time and XX beer with our friends:)

I am loving it! Hopefully soon we can convince Traian to get the guitar and play some good songs.

    • Well, you know what, you are right. To cross to Mexico it was very easy. Today we had to go back to the border to get some sort of import permit for the vehicles. The lineup to cross back to the states was at least 2 hours. We did not have to wait, since we were not crossing back, but it’s good to know for when we will.
