On the road again

I’ve decided to meander my way down to  Mexico City. I’ve never spent more than a couple of days along the Mexico side of the border, so this will be an unprecedented journey. It feels like getting ready to disappear into an undiscovered world that is somehow more real than the one I’ve always lived in. Even with my GPS system, I fully expect that I will get lost somewhere in Mexico.

I can’t wait to get south of the border, where I can enjoy some unique foods that it’s nearly impossible to get here in Indiana and where I’ll have access to some super-cheap prescription acne medications sold right over the counter. Nah, I’m just kidding. That stuff dries my face out way too much. I’ll stick to the over-the-counter stuff that doesn’t make my face turn into ashes.

On the way, I’m going to stop in Austin for a bit. I’ve never been there before, and I hear that it’s a great town. From what I understand, it’s this little oasis of awesome surrounded by a state that is decidedly unawesome.

Google Maps tells me that it takes one day and nine hours to drive from Louisville to Mexico City. I assume that their estimation doesn’t include any time for sleep, so I’m just going to play it by ear and find out how long it takes me to get there without stressing out. If I have to drive for 24 hours straight to make sure that I get back in time for my new job, then so be it.
