We flew into Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas, arriving last night at about midnight. The flight was uneventful, thankfully. The taxi ride to the hotel (about 30 minutes) was hair-raising as we raced through the night streets and along deserted highways at rocket speed. Highlights included steady tailgating until our driver could race across a double yellow line in a curve to pass the vehicles ahead of us. We peered through his fully cracked windshield and prayed to all the gods and goddesses we mostly don't believe in to deliver us safely. And we made it! Phew. Super frazzled, but there was Betsy (that would be Pepsi down here) in a blue wig with a cold pitcher of margaritas to greet us!
Woke up this morning to see, in the daylight, our charming hotel, with tropical courtyard, exotic birds and flowers, warm air. We are indeed in a new world, in Mexico!
