Me encanta Mexico! πŸ˜€

This wonderful country is huge, with SO many beautiful beaches, friendly people, amazing ruins, picturesque peaks, and culinary delights. I love it, and Zennie and I are lucky we can spend serious time here, rolling slowly around the country and exploring many of its cool places. Yay! 😎
