Ten random facts about our trip so far

  1. The plane ride from DFW (Dallas, for you non-airport-code-savvy people) was extremely turbulent. Gotta love the small planes.
  2. Pancho Villa was not so named because he wore a poncho.
  3. Kiefer Sutherland was in Stand By Me (well blow me over, I've never seen this movie.)
  4. You can get your shots and drink only bottled water, but undercooked chicken will make you sick in any country.
  5. It is extremely difficult to travel in a country where you don't know the language.
  6. Drivers here take many risks. Why bother waiting behind someone when you can just use the shoulder to cut him off?
  7. Tony the Tiger endorses cereal here too - but it's called Zucaritas!
  8. A "tuna blanca" is a prickly fruit with a million seeds and a pear-like texture. It is NOT delicious.
  9. Spanish is a lot like French - except that French makes so much more sense to me.
  10. The wedding is in a few hours, and I gotta go!
