Mexico - 2004 - Page 1

We spent 3 days in Puerto Penasco (Rocky Point) Mexico while visiting my parents and my brother in Mesa, Arizona during February of 2004. The weather was cool for that part of the country (mid to high 60's), but still was better than the 10s and 20's of Wisconsin during that time of year! We drove up to Minneapolis, MN and flew out of the International airport there to Phoenix and then my brother and his family graciously took us all around Arizona, and down into old Mexico while we were there. It was a very nice trip and one we hope to do many times.

One more view from our condo balcony.   Getting ready for the weekend -- Corona and all...   Looking out across the road -- note how they seem to begin building something and then just leave it like they ran out of money or something -- there are a lot of structures like this in Mexico.   Going into town.   Onward through town.   And onward through more town.   Fairly easy to get lost, eh?   Some local businesses.   Street vendors in town.
