Well, that is easily answered...remember I hate crowds? For those new to my blog or that are not familiar with Mexican holidays...this is the weekend the majority of Mexicans that went to spend their Christmas vacations in Mexico are making their way back to the USA.
In case you forgot...I have no patience and I hate crowds (except for the Chili Cook-off) or standing in line, whether on foot or within the confines of my vehicle. In Mexico, January 6th officially marks the end of the Christmas holidays when the Three Wise Men bring gifts to the children (kind of like Santa does in the USA).
The lines to cross into the USA are very LONG....as the Three Wise Men are busy making their much discounted toy purchases at the Del Rio Walmart to take back to the children in Ciudad Acuña, Coahuila, Mexico.
We have long lines going into Mexico and long lines going back to the USA...that means...I am staying home!
The year begins with the following gasoline prices in Del Rio, Texas as of Friday, January 3rd, 2014....click on the picture to enlarge it.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
