BEMEP- Online Field Journal, Summer 2004

First update from the road-
In southern Mexico now. Crossed the border in Del Rio quickly and easily. Made the drive, slowly, without any problems. Driving in Mexico always takes longer than you think. Visited the ruins of Tajin in Veracruz; Palenque, Yaxchilan and Bonampak in Chiapas; and Becan and Chicanna in Campeche along the way. Presently I am taking a couple of days off before I head into Belize on Monday to begin work at Pusilha- I am camped on the beach just south of Tulum in the state of Quintana Roo. All of the equipment, and the truck, are performing flawlessly. I hope it continues this way for the next 2 ½ months.
