2001 March - April
We did not have a digital camera till 2004, these pictures
are scanned and from a low quality.
Our first time in Mexico! We went into Baja
California first and enjoyed the beautiful beaches along
the Golfo de California. We traveled with our Dutch
friends Monique en Gerard, which we had met the summer
before in Hyder, Alaska.
Crossing the golf by ferry was too expensive, so we back
tracked to the main land in the north. On our way to
Creel from Hermosillo to Cuauhtemoc a seal
in the transmission broke in Yecora.
Monique practiced her Spanish out loud and said: "Dónde esta un
taller mecánico?" (Where is a garage). A young
boy overheard her and replied that we could follow him to
His garage turned out to be in a cow field and contained only
two concrete blocs. He used our tools and banged on everything for two days. We
did not feel very confident that it was fixed after two days, so we said goodbye
to our Dutch friends and drove back into the States.
