The next day we parted ways. Chris continued to Tucson. I went over the border at Columbus/Paloma.

It went reasonably smoothly with the exception of the customs guy trying to get a $45 bribe for not having an exit stamp. It is a longer story than I want to type now but he was nice enough when he believed me that I only had three bucks until I found a bank. He just put a stamp in.

I was done with that and the TVIP for the bike in 30 minutes. That is why I like that crossing.

But I rode down to Buenaventura. Stayed again at the Hotel Valle Grande.

300 pesos. It is a nice enough little town.
