Today we spent most of the day driving and put a lot of pavement behind us! We had to fight through a tropical rainstorm the entire drive, which added plenty of excitement to the long trek. We also noticed an increased police presence here on the mainland compared to the Baja.  It made us feel pretty antsy because there were so many, but we made it to our random RV park near Tepic.  It is such a beautiful location! As soon as we arrived, a man by the name of O’Conner invited us to his Irish-Mexican family reunion.  This extremely kind and generous family brought us in to enjoy their party and fed us some amazing food! It was a random and wonderful evening, exactly what we needed! One member of the family told us, “Don’t let the few bad things done in Mexico change your opinion of the entire country.” This is so true, the people are absolutely beautiful!
