On The Other Side

Traffic across the border both North and South is high. We do this trip several times a year but this time was the most travelers we have seen. Every one of the big filling stations was flooded with vehicles, mostly big SUV's or big pickups or vans, topped with cargo carriers, or stuff tied on to the top and covered in tarps. Bringing presents home to family in Mexico. There were also some really big caravans of used cars being driven south. I don't know if they end up in Mexico or continue on down to Belize, Guatamala, Honduras.....Central America.

At the border it took us a little more than an hour in line to get to the border agents on the USA side of Bridge II in Laredo. After taking a look at Taylor and deciding he wasn't an illegal sleeping on the back seat, we were granted permission to re-enter the USA. I don't know why I always feel a little anxious about crossing back into the USA but I do. We are spending the night in Laredo and will be back in Houston early tomorrow afternoon.
