Enjoying the Ride

I look forward to receiving notifications that you have updated your ride report and am never disappointed by them. Your photo illustrations and succinct, sometimes humorous, commentary and insights make this an enthralling trip to follow.

Please keep it coming; and ride safe.

@Tom: yeah, at the moment of this writing we are out of Mexico and even though I recognize that it might not be the same for everyone, for us Mexico was just very nice and full of nice people that left us a with a wonderful impression. Writing the ride reports for those parts of the trip makes me think that I would go there again, someday, somehow.

@Julio: hehe, well you ar not that far from the border, and now, thanks to my very forgetful brain, you added a few friends on both sides of the border (in Bisbee and in Sonora :P). So things are possible :)

@duncanmac: thank you for following. I hope the story will not get boring. As I am not a writer, but an IT guy, sometimes I am thinking that I am repetitive... you know like writing code...

@ben2go: here you are... http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...46927&page=731 In my opinion the thread is quite "diluted" with all sort of info more or less to the subject but it helped us decide to go South.

And since here it's night... let's have some fun with a short image-story called "Finding a place to sleep" :

Hi guys! Thanks for the concerns! Yes we felt it quite strong here in Guatemala City. But I think it was accentuated because we were inside and also we are not used to earthquakes. I think here was felt like less than 4 even 3 maybe...

A quick look at the news indicates that 48 people were killed from that earthquake. We had a 4.6 quake here last month and it scared the hell out of me. I initially thought it was a car bomb.

Yes, last night we found out more news as well and it turns out that the earthquake was much more serious in parts closer to the epicenter. Sadly people died and also there was a lot of destruction.
We were fortunate enough to be far enough from the center and also people here in the city are very used to this and as long as there is no damage (people or buildings) they really don't care. I mean 10 minutes after the quake it was life as usual and that helped us a bit to not linger in the quake feeling (for me was the biggest in my life).

I was discussing yesterday with Paul (rtwpaul) in Antigua and he said something similar that people there just went outside, waited it out and that was it, back to normal. No panic no nothing. So that was good.
