I inadvertantly slandered México a little. . . .

Regarding the footnote to the previous entry on the subject of restroom facilities on the road. . .

I realize now that I may have inadvertently slandered México a bit by making my remarks sound too general. It is 3:30 a.m. now, and I am home in San Miguel after a long drive back south, most of which was on México 57. Less than two days after writing that footnote, I enjoyed this beautiful four-lane with many Pemex stations, all with beautiful facilities.

What I said is certainly true of the bush, which is where I have been driving for the most part. However, it is impossible to generalize in any way about México. México is enormous, and nothing is the same anywhere. I shall take more care in the future for the very obvious reason that my experience is still very limited in time and space.

Nonetheless, if you come, bring toilet paper.

After I sleep, I will tell you about the glorious hike today up Quemado, the sacred mountain of the Huichole Indians.

Extraordinary. Absolutely extraordinary.

Ruth, this photo was taken from atop Quemado mountain looking down into the Valle del Salado where we had previously been camping.

Had to find and hire insurance companies, interns, schedule and proof read copy, and PR. Whew. Got some days to myself now though and it's lovely to catch up with you here.
