Still surviving in Mexico

Ok my friends. Now we have to push it. Mexico is a huge beautiful country. I wish we had more time to visit because the thing to see are endless. After crossing the sea of Cortez from La Paz to Topolobampo with a ferry that took 8 hours we meet Mike, Richard, and Alfonso in Mazatlan. Mike will be joining us for the rest of the trip until Costa Rica. Alfonso and Richard are heading back north. The riding itself is not that great as we are travelling along the highway 15 south. We are heading toward Irapuato to get the rear case for Matthew’s BMW that broke off on the road of terror and my new license plate. I lost the plate somewhere in the desert in Baja California a few days back. In Baja we met some riders that have really helped us out by getting what we needed. A special thanks goes to Edgar, Gustavo, Ruben, Hiram and Sergio.

Last night we stayed in the city of Ocatlan. Unfortunately i experienced a terrible tooth hake. I decided to have that looked after because the pain-killer we have with us didn’t seem to solve the problem. In the city of Irapuato, I ask where i could find a dentist. As soon as i entered the office the doctor was watching some youtube videos on his computer. It felt like going to the barber. First come, first serve. No one in the waiting room. I explain my situation. The video below explain better what happened next.

  1. C’est absolument abominable… Le prochain trip, fais un check up dentiste et le reste, AVANT de partir. Je participe beaucoup car je viens d’avoir une extraction, mais avec grande douceur et anesthesie…

  2. OMG for real. I am not too worry as I still have 32 teeth to go and about 30 more countries to cross. When I will be done with the trip i will still have a couple. πŸ™‚

  3. OMG..What an experience…I hope you had some freezing first! Forgive me if I had difficulties containing my laughter. That video post of the extraction was awesome! Poor Roberto! Hope you are feeling better now and back on the road with your Amigos. Our best to you all! Take Care and Stay well.

  4. I want to see the part where Roberto knocked over the dentist to get at all the novacaine then started doing donuts on his bike on main street …..

  5. That video is scary!! The kids want to know…. “Did the “dentist” pull out your tooth?? Did it hurt?”
    We are watching your journey. Safe travels and be safe. Makena says “please no more dentist visits!”
