The next morning we got back on the main road and started heading south. Here's a quick last look at San Juan de Alima.
As we continued along the road, we passed a dapper UK gentleman wearing beige bermuda shorts, crisp shirt and a straw top hat, about sixty years old, driving a white VW bug that had conked out just past a curve heading north. He was standing next to his car trying to figure out what to do. We turned around and went back to help, and discovered that the cable to his accelerator pedal had snapped! Moments later, a middle aged local driving a pick up truck pulled up behind us, produced a rope, tied the VW behind his car, and towed the gentleman the twenty minutes to the next town. We drove a short distance and then turned around to head back south, and what a sight it was when we passed them! The pick-up truck, the rope, and the dapper gentleman behind the wheel of his VW, being towed to safety! Again I was touched with the kindness of the Mexican people.
We passed many fields of banana trees, with bags wrapped around the bananas to hasten the ripening process.
Love to you all, and Buenas Noches....
