Day 34 – Tuesday, July 30, 2013
We spent the night at El Tejin, MX in order to get into the archeological site when they opened at 9:00 AM. It is an amazing site built between 300 AD and 1200 AD. We took a lot of pictures and I will post some here to tell the story. Julie notes “________(because she was speechless and in awe!)
The pole dancers. What did you think this post was about? Julie notes “I am sensing some reader disappointment in the male 15 to 115 target audience.”
We then drove on to the beach town of Tecolutla, MX about an hour away. It is a neat little Mexican town on a point with the Gulf of Mexico on one side and the Tecolutla River on the other.
We toured the town in the afternoon and stopped for cervezas and the biggest, freshest shrimp cocktails you can imagine.
The group enjoying some cold beer and shrimp. Sooooo GOOD, especially with temperatures of 35C and high humidity. Julie notes “Yes they even convinced to drink la cerveza. No margueritas available here for the senora. But I’m starting to understand the attraction on a hot day. Siestas make more sense too.”
A great day.
Julie notes “Yes a great day despite the fact; that we purposely drove the wrong way down a one way street, with the locals yelling and pointing, that WE were the target of police attention and were questioned twice, and our lack of Spanish may have helped us on our way, that all radios died except ours when we reached our destination town and ‘follow the leader’ turned into ‘where’s Wally Wally Bang Bang and his entourage’. And more giant topes! It’s amazing what a cold beverage forgives and forgets.”
that’s all for today folks, the muleskinner and his sidekick
