I think those situations are completely different. In my trip I'm looking for challenges as well as new ideas and new people. As for me challenges develop my ability to stay in control of the situation no matter what.

But this accident you raised here is totally out of anyones control. And those people there were not even looking for challenges, just for the rest with their families. You can't compare such stuff.

MikeMike makes some really good points about the incident. I know I take some chances riding in Mexican traffic and can see myself getting into that kind of jam. But it would involve the misjudgments MikeMike highlighted.

Glad you're OK and let the CATours guys help you. Hope the rest of your trip is a bit less, uhmmm, "instructive".

I'm glad you recorded the accident. I think she intentionally ran you off the road...I would get her insurance to pay for your damages, but that's me. That would've pissed me off
