... Mexicana. Well you will be happy to know it is a big road going through Reynosa Mx. a city with a population of 600,000 known souls, and probably another 400,000 trying to get across the border into the USA hoping for a better life, although I do not see it for illegals. OK not 5 minutes into Reynosa we hit our first split in the road, it is dark and we can hardly read the signs, so I take the road that seems to venture off to the right, see earlier.
