Hello PV

31 March 2012
Cardie, Mo and I hired a driver and did the 4 hour drive up from Barra to PV yesterday. We are checked in at the Mayan Palace which is part of the Grand Mayan Resort complex. This place is massive; there are 7 or 8 huge hotels all along the beach in Nuevo Vallarta all connected by pathways, gardens and swimming pools. The place is beautiful and the people are so helpful and friendly.

This morning our friend Sabrina stopped by for a visit with her children who are both close to Cardens age. We had a lot of catching up to do so we piled in her car and went to her house for a couple of hours. Carden loved it! He hasn't really had a lot of kids to play with lately. Ideas become reality really fast when Im with Sabrina and next thing you know I am flying down the PV Freeway in her Durango headed for the Costco. Sabrina is in her suv in front of me; she gets out at a stop light, gives me some good directions and heads off to Yelapa for the weekend....

Hurtling down the highway after some successful shopping (thank you S' for your Costco card and all the cash in your wallet!) every time I blink I think "This is great!" and "I am never going to find my way back.... how did I get into this situation?...." But... turns out, my "completely clueless, horrendous and dangerous" driving habits (thank you very much J.Lim) are actually considered a "skill" here in Mexico and I fit in perfectly with all the locals on the road!

The rules here completely make sense to me: The middle lanes are the express; the outer lanes not, the very left lane always turns right...unless it does'nt; the left lane turns left... or straight...or does a U-turn across the freeway; if you hit cobblestones you are not on the highway anymore. Chances are if you follow a car with a white person in it you will end up at Costco or Nuevo Vallarta!

Thanks for the adventure S'. We are really looking forward to spending some more time catching up with that family!.
