Happy birthday to Gillian Dear it is my sisters 50th birthday today. Hip hip hooray and all that. I hope you liked your Michelin man please sends us a picture, as I have not seen it yet only heard about it. She will be thrilled I have just shared her age out there on the Internet thingy but her birthday is also making me feel old to. I had a bit of a lie in after last nights tearing around in the darkness and todays plan was to hit Brownsville on the Border via Corpus Christie as I heard it was nice. I did a short run along the gulf then I headed inland as there are no roads at all along the coast. Inland flat and pretty uninspiring, it’s hot so just spent today plugging away at the miles heading south. I decided to treat myself to a Motel 6 tonight, as it was my last night in the US. This was next to a shopping mall so of to the food court for my dinner I had a nice Chinese and then back to the motel to swot up on the border crossing procedure and get my paperwork in order. Mexico in the morning I am finally moving into the Latin America part of my trip. I am looking forward to this but also I am shit scared of Mexico after all the horror stories I have been hearing from all over the place and from different folks. I have not heard one positive remark about Mexico yet so I am I right to be concerned well I do hope every one has got it all wrong and I am doing the right thing heading through Mexico at this moment in time.
