Hola, Jay! Que tal?

Corbeau from Ottawa, here. Me and Helen are wishing you a great adventure.

And don't tell her I plan to brush up on my high school Spanish... I've switched careers, now, and as a high school French teacher, I plan to use the most of my 9 weeks of summer holidays to explore Mexico -- perhaps as early as 2011...

Thanks again for all the pix. I appreciate how much time it requires.

Only use the informal method if you know the person on a first name basis.

In general, Latinos tend to be very polite folks. Best to reciprocate in kind.
Muchos gracias, that's what I'm doing and getting good responses so far

Hola Jean-Francois! That sounds like a very good plan.

For everyone else, JF was the first rider I stayed with during a motorcycle trip. It was a 10-day ride thru Canada in my first year of riding properly (2005).

Just came back from 3 days in the Chiapas jungles, staying in a small rural Mayan village, Naha, south of Palenque. Nothing exciting, just relaxing by a lake and taking in their lifestyle. 100 kms of off-road, good riding. Lots of pictures, to come soon.

Back in San Cristobal. Heading to Guatemala tomorrow.

It's called nature. A single man on the road, traversing the world; keep it real. Besides, I know Jay; he's smoother than glass.
Silvy knows what's up in Latin America.

OK maybe he is smooth but I think he has some class. Class seems to mean you don't blab it on some forum on the internet. Ride reports with sexual conquents, now that's adventure
