“Yo les invito a comer,” Hijinio invited. “Come on in and eat.”
John, as usual, was riding ahead of me and Davy. While he waited for us to catch up, John started talking with the owner of a restaurant. As soon as we arrived, he invited us all for lunch
Oh my! People have been telling us that the food in Veracruz is really good, and they were certainly right.
Hijinio brought out a big plate of pork, a bowl of beans, and a bottomless pile of tortillas. We ate and ate and ate…
…and then Juan de Dios and two friends walked in.
“We found you!” they exclaimed. Not that our enormous pile of bikes outside the restaurant were hard to find…
Juan de Dios is the president of the local motorcycle club, and had come out to escort us into the city.
It’s amazing what a difference having an escort makes. The cities are so big and confusing, but having someone who knows their way around help us through is such a blessing.
