Well folks!  We made it to Puebla, Mexico!  Below is the journey:

Aug 7 – Crossing the U.S./Mexican Border

That’s it for pictures until further across the border!  We left about 8:15 AM, had a very brief stop with a glance in the trunk of our car at Customs and to Immigration building right around 9:00 AM. Everything went extremely smooth!  Praise the Lord!  They do things very different – you progress through Step 1, over to Step 2, then back to Step 1, right over to Step 4 fast lane to pay for Visa, then back to Step 3, and again over to Step 4 where you wait in an incredibly long, hot line to get sticker for your car!  Welcome to Mexican Bureaucracy!

Once we got through all that, we had a couple of point checks to be sure we had the sticker on our car and possessed the right paperwork.  And … we were off!!

Hills/Mountains of Mexico - Oh! and that would be the important sticker in the front window we had to get at the border.
