We have always regarded the windshield of our 1957 Greyhound as our “picture window of life”; in our bus-house, the view is always changing. Please travel Mexico vicariously and virtually with us and enjoy our changing Ventana Vistas.

  1. ORALE!!! Ya mero se van!! HOY, Viernes 21?

    BUEN VIAJE!!! we will of course read your blog, and we look forward to it.

    The only think we are not sure about is WHERE are you going, and for how long!!?? Maybe you don’t know that yet yourselves!! We look forward to hearing more about the planned agenda.

    Abrazotes to the two of you (3? do you have Spike for company?) Que les vaya muy bien.

  2. Did you solve the transmission Problem? What was wrong?


  3. I have probably just not known where to look in your material but I do not see your full names listed. Is that by design?

    I have PD4104 5030 and am very interested in your trip. Would love to do the same but circumstance just will not allow for the time being.

    Wishing you a safe and happy journey.
