Another good day of travel today. We made it to our next stop in Los Mochis. Before we got very far this morning we stopped at a Pemex for Diesel Fuel. A little different than at home because about 4 guys and a kid and 5 dogs immediately descended on the Ponderosa. Because our fuel tank is locked, they had to wait to start fuelling so I had a chance to get my bearings and confirm that the pump was at zero. The guy even pointed to the pump to make sure I was happy it was at zero. Two guys rolled out a barrel and got up to do the windows while another pumped the fuel. It is still a little hard to get ones head around paying over $4500.00 for fuel. Peso's that is. And they didn't take credit cards so good thing we had cash available. Diesel is about $1.42 a liter Canadian. Ouch!!!
Here is the map of todays travels from San Carlos to Los Mochis Mexico which was 381 kms.
One of the things about the toll roads is all of the toll booths we have to go through. If the toll booth is open the toll is between 200 and 300 perso's. A lot of the toll booths are not officially open but instead there are local people there asking for donations. 20 peso's or so makes them smile or if you choose you can just drive through. The people here find very innovative ways to make a few peso's and you have to know it is going to help feed their families.
