Highway 200 is a four-lane divided highway for the most part, except where it passes through towns, so we made good time. There were some serious looking thunderstorms coming out of the mountains to the east, but other than one sprinkle and a good five minute soaking we stayed ahead of the storms all day. It’s so hot we were dry in a few minutes.
We got into Juchitan at about 4:30pm, and got checked in to a local hotel by 5:30pm. It’s a friendly town that doesn’t get many gringo visitors so we stick out like sore thumbs!
I’ve developed a bad infection in my ears (probably from all the swimming). I caught it in time for the right ear, but the left ear is a mess and very painful so I’m back on the antibiotics to kick it. For the time being taking off my helmet is torture!
We’re going to cut across the country to the Atlantic tomorrow. We’re at the narrowest point between the Pacific and the Atlantic, so we’ll see if we can reach Vera Cruz.
