December 13 – 16, 2018.
Finally, we turned in from the coast. It had been getting warm and we were ready for a change. We headed towards the area of my Mexico map that I had created last summer dotted with interesting things to see and do at every turn. Instead of long days looking for the next beach to camp on we would have short days looking for the next sight to see. A volcano, a Pueblo Magico, and ruins would fill our agenda.
We felt like we had finally arrived at the beginning of our adventure and were ready to dive right in – that is until our computer broke. Camped on the side of a volcano we crawled into bed one night after a long day of hiking ready to wind down with a TV ‘sode on the laptop. I turned the computer on but the screen remained black. I tried turning it off and back on again. But the screen remained a soul-crushing surface of nothing reflecting back my distressed expression. This was upsetting not only because we wouldn’t know the fate of Mike, Harvey, Lewis, and the now famous princess, but because all of my pictures from the previous weeks lived only on the computer and, of course, because the blasted thing (a Mac) is way too expensive for us to replace.
So we broke out the Kindle and the crossword puzzle book and made a plan to head to Guadalajara to find a computer repair shop on the next business day. More on that in the next post.
