thread seems ok, sometimes when you copy and paste from word or other docs, it introduces code that corrupts the thread.. so you should be fine now.

SR-
Interesting views and info on the migrant workers. Something you won't hear/see in the normal US media. Someone give that guy a star for flipping burgers at Wendy's for four years, in a foreign land, in a foreign language. In the snow of Colorado!

Regarding youtube, somewhere, youtube gives you the raw embeddable HTML link, (I don't remember where, but it was a bit hard to find), you just cut & paste it into your post (no clicking image icon, etc) and it just works. I think I found the tips in ask baldy. The hardest part is finding the link generator on your youtube video. I did it- once

Also if you notice those vehicles dont have the temporary import papers. Very few cars in zacatecas are legally licensed. Usually the cars illegaly imported are the ones that dont have them but sometimes you see some that are mexican cars with illegal plates. My favorite is when the cars have "trailer" license plates.

Thanks for posting your RR. It was a refreshing view of the workers that come to the US to work versus what the media reports. I've never seen this part of Mexico in the Reports before.

Safe Travels!

Cool!

Hey, thanks for the wonderful report on your ride...it's been a coons age since I've been down that way and it brought back a lot of memories of past journeys into the Mexican countryside.
Quite a quaint little journey and well reported, good job! Enjoyed the great pics and comments, you have a natural style and find interesting things to see and flavor your trip with.
Just sayin.......
