We finally made it into Mexico, crossing the border on Saturday, April 18, one week after departing Coarsegold. Driving in Mexico is a bit different from driving in California, in that the major
highways are often narrower in Mexico. Also, there are toll booths frequently, making the trip even more expensive. One other thing that makes driving more difficult in Mexico is the many "topes" (speed
bumps), even on the major highways.
