Challenges and Oranges? - Nik
As for the drive down to Veracruz today, It was incredible views. We passed a town that grew oranges... trucks and pick ups and 18 wheelers filled with oranges stacked 15 feet high and orange trees as far as the eye can see. Oranges splattered all over the streets. They even made a huge statue of an orange picker (rob will be posting the pictures). We stopped for a big glass of fresh oj. Best Oj I have ever had! As for Veracruz, beautiful. We got a hotel\hostel for 300 pesos\night, water front and really neat looking. I'm looking forward to getting better and getting to explore this city and take a dip in the ocean.
