Friday will be the last day here in Chi-town. Nice city, nice people, not so nice weather. We are enjoying the remaining days until we have to face southern people and southern food. Let's go!

Hot Springs, AR

Hot Springs, United States


We had two nice days in Hot Springs in Arkansas. We stayed at a nice Couch Surfing place with an older guy. He was very friendly and offered us a free dinner including a meditation afterwards. On the next day he made us some oat meal for breakfast. We went straight to the National Park and did the whole Sunset Trail. On the evening we cooled down in a swimming pool.

Zwei Naechte in El Trucko

Texarkana, United States


Texarkana is a little city on the border of Arkansas and Texas. We spent one night in our El Trucko and found out that it is really comfortable. We bought some outdoor gear and moved on into Texas.

Texas here we are!

We made our way slowly through beautiful Texas. We didn't use the interstate for a while to have a look at the amazing farms and the countryside of Texas. In the evening we spent a some time in the Lone Star Bar and had a couple of beers.

Austin

Austin, United States


We spent three nights in Austin, TX. The city is really nice with lots of music and alternative people. We had some typical Texas BBQ and a nice view over the city from one of the highest points of the area. Afterwards we went to a non touristic bar in Austin. The city is really worth a trip!

The Mexican Border

Del Rio, United States


We skipped the border at Loredo and took a detour to Del Rio. Everybody said that it is much saver to ross the border there. We stayed in an Air Force Base at the border with a nice guy. His name is David and he is studying there to become a cargo pilot. It was interesting to stay at an AIr Fore base over night. We took it easy and went to bed without a big party. We needed the sleep for the next day when crossing the border to Mexico.

Mexico, Mexico Mexico!

Monterrey, Mexico


We finally arrived in Mexico! Crossing the border was easy and just took us about one hour of paper work. The way to Monterrey was really difficult. We got stopped by the police about five times. All of them were friendliy but one Policia Municipal was very corrupted. They didn't let us go until we payed a pribe of 1000 Pesos. But we made it and now we are staying with a very friendly guy named RIcardo in Monterrey. He, his friends and his father are very friendly to us. Daniel and me are planning to stay here for about one week. We want to see the city center, go hiking in the unbelievable mountains around the city and of course taste some Mexican nightlife!

Real de Catorce

Matehuala, Mexico


We stayed two days in Real de Catorce. It is a nice and quiet mountain village. We did some nice hiking to abandoned villages around real the catorce. The surrounding mountains are really nice and there are a lot of old silver mines. The pictures can give some impressions...

Aguascaliente and the San Marcus Feria

Aguascalientes, Mexico


We arrived in aguascaliente and did couch surfing. Surprinsingly we found out that the biggest street fair of Mexico is right now here and it is the best time to visit. We went to the fair and saw cockfights, went to the casino and had 1 liter beers for 20 pesos (1,30 Euro). Mexican fairs are amazing: a f... lot of people, mariachis, thousands of stores and eating possibilities, bullfights, cockfights, and a lot of dancing in the streets!
