Sporting big Gringo smiles, we asked the señora behind the desk, ¿Tiene usted un lugar para alquilar para nuestro RV? (I had been practicing the question for the last four hours while on the road). Solo por el mes, she told us: 11,000 pesos ($600), about $20/day. emitra electricity bill payment I dug deep deep into my pockets for the pesos, but came up short and had to find the Jaxter para obtener mas pesos.

She had already gone down to check out our old site #17 and discovered that Ariel, the owner, had converted most of the RV sites into individual habitaciones or casitas, something that he had started doing six years ago when we were there. Many of the sites that were left had no electricity or the sewer had been plugged with cement, and the beautiful saltillo tiles that used to be on the patios were cracked and missing.

We saw two trailers parked in year-long sites, but it looked as though no one had lived in them for a long time. The site we had used six years ago was still there, but it was in such a state of disrepair that it looked nothing like it used to. We might have made it work for us somehow. In the past, the owner, was always more than willing to accommodate his RV tenants in any way he could. The deal breaker for us was no internet signal, so, sadly, we left and headed for Kino Viejo and Islandia.

Islandia Marina and RV Park is a mile and a half down the beach from La Playa. The park is mostly made up of Canadian and American “snowbirds” and some full-timers, which is hard to fathom because summer temperatures even on the beach tend to be sweltering and muggy, reaching easily into the 100 + degrees. grade 9 electricity quiz With a daily rate of $360 pesos ($17 Us), we decided to give it a try for a couple of weeks.

We had quite a few sites to choose from and all were very close to the beach. There are always a few “quirks” at Mexico RV parks, and Islandia is no different. Both Punto Vista and Islandia didn’t have enough water pressure to hook water hoses directly to the truck camper water lines. We had to rely on our 12 volt water pump system to pressurize the water lines. And the water at Islandia was desalinated locally so it was both briney and very hard.

Water for RV park use is delivered in tanks and pumped into an overhead storage tank in the middle of the park. gas variables pogil My guess is that the tank holds 500 gals. or more 25 ft. above ground. We definitely cannot drink the water here, or any where in Mexico, so we rely on visits to the local Modelo distributor store, Super San Pedro, where we pick up a couple of gallons of potable water every few days.

I met Marco Rodriguez and Jose walking towards me one afternoon whilst I was taking pics. Muy amable hombres. I asked if I could take their picture, and they kindly assented. speedy q gas station Later in the afternoon when I was walking back to Islandia, Jose was sitting on the curb playing a beautiful corridousing his thumb to pick a melodic flurry of single notes. When he saw me, he smiled broadly and started playing La Bamba. I said to him, Ah señor, ¡reconozco esa canción: La Bamba! From then on, every time I passed him when he was playing, he’d start playing La Bamba. electricity quiz ks3 One afternoon I was chatting with Philippe, one of the park owners who speaks fluent English and Marco walked by strumming a huge 12 string guitar, a favorite of los mariachis. When he saw me, he smiled broadly with his toothless grin and asked me if I played (Phillipe translated). I said Si pero solo toco un poco la guitarra. He ran into the office and came back with another guitar. He gave me the 12-string and started playing, of all things, Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire.” Music as it turns out is part of every Mecan’s life.
