Anyways, during the ride through Mexico, I got food poison and the LAMA wives took care of me. A doctor came to see me to give me two injections to clear up the problem. I had never been so sick in my life. The ride through Mexico was interesting to say the least, the roads were horrible and very dangerous. Found a few good ones in the mountains as a motorcycle rider would truly enjoy, however, being that I was so sick, I was not able to enjoy it as much, just needed to stay alive.
Even though the experience in Guatemala was not pleasant at the hosting house, I still managed to find pleasure in some areas. They took me to their local plaza where I was able to experience good grilled corn and finally my favorite, fresh coconut.
Throughout this ride I have been the highlight of the locals in Mexico and Guatemala. When I stop places, the families with children come to me and ask to take pictures as they have never seen a woman on a motorcycle. Some women ride scooters and the typical small bikes but none like mine that is travelling such long distances.
So, the journey continues tomorrow as the guys will pick me up early, we will continue riding to El Salvador and who knows where else. We will be riding with 3 Guatemalan men that ride like maniacs. I had to learn how to ride like them as they ride through their congested polluted city weaving in and out of traffic at high speeds not caring that we are following them. One night they rode so fast at night Mario and I got lost.There are no lights at night on the highways and very dangerous. I have no pics of that experience but may have some video footage to be posted in the future.
