We park ourselves on the couch downstairs and sit back, relax and watch some tv. There's a few documentaries on the USA and Mexican border which is quite interesting. However, all it did was make us miss Mexico so we discuss whether it's possible to make a stint there again on the way to USA. Still have to check out flights ...
