Veracruz to Tampico

Veracruz is a busy sea port with a lot of equipment supporting oil rigs out in the Golf. The Mexican navy was also very evident; they have a big base there.

Leaving Veracruz we turned the corner on the Golf of Mexico and began a more northerly trek following the Golf coast. Just outside of Tampico, the first motel we tried took us in (no disguises were required!).

Tomorrow we run up to the border at Matamoros, Mexico and cross over to Brownsville, Texas. All this driving is getting a bit old and we are running out of clean clothes.
