Pikey Steve McCabe and myself took a water taxi to Yalapa, I just did the day trip Pikey and Steve stayed for the party live band at Freddies moms place Angelinas. Time seems to stop when you get off the boat there are no cars in this village it reminded me of Negril Jamaica 28 years ago.

This guy wanted to charge for a photo

Steve McCabe broke his toe so we didn't ride yesterday and probably not today.

These kids were pushing this BMX bike along the beach at times the waves came up over the wheels.
Pikey and me went swimming in the ocean when we went in the waves picked up it was hard to get in but getting out was even harder I got pounded a few times then you think you could get out and it would drag you back out and pound you again
The guys Papentala flyers drop backwards off this pole and rotate upside down to the ground.

The best pork tacos in PV

Today was by far my best day riding down here in the las 2 years.
We did 2 shuttle laps on jurillo we also got some good video on the helmet cam, this is Fabricio,s trailer he designed after ours.
This is Fabricio pinning it down just before he hit a stump and seperated his shoulder.
When we got out to the road a complete stranger threw us in his truck and we did another lap.
Another look at the scenery Alonso wore the helmut cam today
we were just looking at the footage it looks sweet.

We are off to watch Canada take on the US in Olympic hockey at Steve's sport's bar
Go Canada Go!!!

We woke up this morning put our bikes together then went to the market to get some fruit what a score they also had fish and shrimp in all shapes and sizes then Steve McCabe Pikey and Me went grocery shopping, that was pretty interesting considering between the three of us we can only speak a few words of Spanish.
