Here we are, back at Wood's house, our friend, in
Huntsville, Texas.But this time around, with the bus
and in much better spirits.
For all those people we've met along the way, that
told us that it would be very difficult to bring the
bus into the States,I am so happy to let them know:
They were wrong.
Back in time, We really enjoyed our stops along the
Pacific coast of Mexico, where we met lots of nice
people and did some rewarding shows, untill we came

We did met up with a very nice familly in Ricon de los
Guayabitos , Cynthia, Emilie, Ana, Valerie and Martin.
It is in their huge garden by the beach that we spent
10 days emptying, cleaning and repainting the bus.

school bus and did a wooden frame to fit it in.
In Saltillo we met Juan, an electrician, who helped us
fixing indicators lights, Brake lights, whippers
ect… After 2 days we went back on the road and a
straight drive to Laredo.
The customs at the border were very friendly and in we

get stop by the police on the first night and very
politely were asked to pull over untill the morning,
as we were driving too slow with too little light on
Our next plans from here are the Spoleto festival in
Charleston from the 22nd of May to the 10th of June

to the 15th of July.
