NEXT DESTINATION? We are here for a while
We decided that today would be a beach day so after lunch we all loaded up and headed down to the beach. The beach is quite a ways below us so we cheat and take the jeep down so we don't have to climb the hill when we are done. Beautiful day with a bit of overcast, just perfect for us.
We got back and had a shower and a cool down swim in the pool and Sue and I headed into La Penita for groceries. It is only about a mile but rather than walk, we took the Jeep. Got all the groceries we needed for 139 pesos which is about 9.50 CND and headed for home. Got to the stop light and there was a colectivo ahead of us. These are newer vans that they use for buses and sometimes taxi's. We are behind him and I notice him start to roll back. A good lot of these vans have standard transmissions and if your foot is not on the brakes firmly they will roll back. I blew the horn but just as he put on the brake he hit the front of us real lightly. Well out he came crying wolf and how we hit him. I got out and confronted him a bit and started taking pictures and shaking my finger at him. Of course some of the locals came over and started saying Peso's! I stuck to my guns and I guess he felt there was nothing in it for him so he got in the van and left. There was no damage to either vehicle so I guess that was the end of it. I guess I won the first accident war!!! I can see how some people might be intimidated by the aggression at first but if you stick to it, they will sometimes give in. If it had of been my fault then a few peso's would have been the way to handle it I'm sure. By the look of the dents in the back, this was not this dudes first accident. We are going to take the dash camera out of the Ponderosa and put in the Jeep because those things help with accidents and police sometimes when you point them out. Hope we never have to use it though.
Back home and a great Insta Pot supper of pork chops and veggies. I love the Insta Pot!!
