That was a lot of travel just to get back to the bus. Probably should have just drove.
The bus was just how we left it. I don’t know why we’d ever expect anything different. I don’t think we’ve ever left one of our vehicles/boats that we didn’t come back and find unchanged.
We went up to the States with a duffle bag and two kids’ backpacks. We returned with four plastic bins containing a combined one-hundred-thirty pounds. That sounds ridiculous. But it’s not as bad as it seems. We went up there with pretty much the clothes on our backs. It was time to replenish wardrobes a little bit. So coming back we had a lot of new clothes. Toys for Christmas. New sheets. And eighty pounds of gold bullion.
Only one puppy left out of the litter that was born the day before we flew out. These dogs follow us all over town. They’ll even sit outside OXXO waiting patiently. Nothing makes for more confused locals than a bunch of gringos walking around town with a pack of mutts on our heels.
We’re on our way, kiddo.
