Dec. 26 – Alamos to Culiacan

2008 December 31

Up early (for us!) and had a ‘hot shower’ at Jerry’s. Back down the mountain to Navajoa, and back out into the Sonoran dert. Than changed to lush farmland as we crossed the line into Sinaloa. Lots of road toll stops, lots of holday traffic.  Much better after switching from cuoda (toll) to libre (free)  after Guasave.  Nice two-lane, all to ourselves;  flew past Neuvo Ingleterra.

Stopped for the night in Culiacan;  big, ugly, nasty Mexican city of 680,000.  Struggled to find a place we could afford to stay in.  Was supposed to include internet, but we could not stay connected.  Went to Centro, found a casino and got excited, but no card games, just machines.  Had chinese food for dinner, and went back to hotel to sleep.  I have been suffering with some sort of bronchitis-like thing since leaving Silver City, and it is getting pretty serious.  If it does not improve soon, I will need to visit a clinic or farmacia.
