I have a little adventure to tell you about. Hayden Groendyke and I have been scheduled to travel down to Huatulco, MX to take part in a race, the La Carrera Panamericana (to view the official site for MX), from the southern part of Mexico to Texas. As time drew near for the race and for us to depart, a sudden change in plans came about and one of the participants was unable to attend the race so I went from being the photographer to Co-Piloto (more on what that is later).
This first blog is of our pre-race stay before we left for the rally race across Mexico. We were guests in the home of Guillermo & Rocio Berriochoa (a long time family friends of Hayden’s) at Villa SaBah for three days before the big race began. They were very gracious and generous hosts. The accommodations were rough and we had to bear with what we had to deal with, just kidding. The food was fabulous every day, even the Cricket Tacos (yes, crickets as in bugs). Of course we had to get a massage the day before the race began, so the tables were set up just above the cliff behind the pool. Oh the life of a race car driver….
Just down the hill from their home they own a B&B named Villas FaSol which has 15 rooms and is in the same gated community with a private beach and food to die for (see photos below) which I highly recommend for anyone to visit. The food was prepared there and brought up to the house every day.
Wow, what a way to start a race!!!!
