Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer, since August. 2006
A nice sunny day again, warm and breezy. After a morning walk on the beach coffee and email we went for and drive into Guasave in an attempt to find Walmart. After a few wrong turns we stopped at a Pemex to ask for directions. Well there was 3 attendants here that rushed over to help us and each one was pointing in a different direction, of course we do not know enough Spanish and they no English so it was a graphic conversation of hand signals and gestures.
But with their help we did find Walmart a few minutes later.
We were looking for camera accessories and they no speak English, they smiled and sent us to another counter and not much more luck here. But once again a good Samaritan came out of nowhere to help us with very good English to translate to the store staff what we wanted. This being successful we carried on with the rest of our shopping and loaded up the car. Now its lunch time and there just happens to be a Burger King next door and being away from this kinda stuff for almost 3 months we thought we would check it out. Very clean , modern and the same as Canada and US except all in Spanish. No problemo, pictures lead the way and some words are English so we order our Whopper Combos and satisfy a craving for a good hamburger.
Back at camp we relax and read outside for a while, then a late supper of a rotisserie chicken from Walmart, new potatoes, broccoli and carrots and of course our Swiss Chalet sauce.
