Some of the roads had the biggest, roughest pot holes, and long gouges and ruts, which were dangerous if we got our tyres caught in them. Every so now and then I’d hit an unavoidable pot hole and think my tyre was going to blow. We’d been a bit spoiled with some of the great concrete highways here in Mexico.
