the Terry Fox run
We left Vallarta early this morning with a hug and goodbye for Gustavo
and Brenda. I’d been looking forward to riding again after nearly
2 weeks and I got all excited in the crack of dawn preparations. As
excited as I could be that is, with my eyes half shut. We rode the
now familiar chemin towards downtown Puerto and got caught up in what
would soon be the Terry Fox run.

The Phallic Lighthouse hotel
We arrive in Lazaro Cardenas on Good Friday and guided by imprecise
directions from several separate sources we find ourselves checking
out a sex motel (the cheapest thing around). We haggle until the deal
is good and scoot inside the phallic “lighthouse” hotel.
Where’s the beach?
Our map shows a road running right along the coast, but we don’t
see the beach for two full days. We have mastered the routine of early
morning rising, afternoon relaxing, and riding till nightfall.
