Well folks, I have been in laredo all day. This morning at 8am it was 95degrees. by 11am it was 130degrees, yes, I said 130. I could not stay cool enough,our truck has air and we had it blasting it still felt warm in here. The people who live here had on jeans and long sleeve shirts it made me feel even hotter looking at them. It has cooled down and is now 102 which actually feels good. We headed further south today to pick up a del monte load going to Illinois. I think we are as far south as we can possibly go without going straight into Mexico. It really feels like I entered another country. No one speaks english, and all the radio stations are either spanish music or spanish talk radio. My team mate and I got lunch and I was trying to tell the lady what I wanted and she did not understand me and she was asking me questions and I did not understand her so I just said yes and she would put something on my plate. I just didn't want to hold the line up any longer. That is the cool thing about being down here you can get really good Mexican food. It does not matter where you get it, a roach coach or a resturant , you can't go wrong it is all good.
