Yesterday Bruce crossed over the Mexican border with our son in law JC, driving a loaded truck and trailer filled with equipment– tools, mountain bikes, paddle surf boards– for JC’s tourist hotel on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.
I knew traveling in Mexico would be tricky. As recently as July, 2013, the U.S. issued a traveler safety alert
for Mexico; not even U.S. officials and their families drive in certain
areas. So there’s Bruce and JC, having to cross at a different border
station than originally planned due to complications at the Brownsville
station. And to get back on the toll road, they had to travel 90 miles
on an off road.
