Tonight we mourn the passing of our beloved and final cat, Nermal, who has traveled with us the past 1000-plus miles from Madera. She weathered a week of roadside pit-stops and spending the night outside sleeping in the trailer, before allowing herself to relax a little too much around the local dogs this afternoon. She was a great cat, and we will all miss her very much.
On a slightly lighter note, we also had an incident in the hotel in Silao, Guanajuato, with Nattie's electric toothbrush getting dropped in the toilet.
Overall, the trip has gone smoothly. Gracias a Dios, we have yet to be pulled over by either police or military, even after driving back and forth through Toluca about three times looking for the (unmarked) turnoff. We are looking forward with much anticipation to continuing east, tomorrow, beyond Puebla and into less urban and less crowded parts.
The scenery pictures shown are up near Gomez Palacio, near Zacatecas, and right here in Tenancingo.
