It was freezing cold this morning when the boys left their hotel at about 8 am and remembering that their good friends back home would now assemble at the meeting points of T58 – so quick picture was taken to send to them saying hi ,cheers and prost from Mexico.


Cheers and prost to all back home in EL

From Camago the route was very pleasant again on a 2 lane highway with not too much traffic being encountered; and the highway led the boys right south in the middle of Mexico through bigger towns like Torreon and Zagatecas before reaching San Luis Potosi



San Luis Potosíis the capital and the most populous city of the Mexican state of San Luis Potosí. The city lies at an elevation of 1,850 metres). It has an estimated population of 735,886 in the city proper and a population of approximately 1,021,688 in its metropolitan area, formed with the neighbour city of Soledad de Graciano Sánchez and some other small townships inside the urban area.

The city is in the west-central part of the state of San Luis Potosí,
The city is named after Louis IX of France (also known in Mexico as San Luis Rey de Francia, Saint Louis, King of France), who is the city’s patron saint. Potosí was added in reference to the fabulously rich mines of Potosí, Bolivia, discovered some forty years before the city was founded, as the exploitation of silver and gold mines in Cerro de San Pedro, near San Luis, was the main reason for the founding of the city in 1592.


Now, the city is one of the main industrial centres in central Mexico with a prolific manufacturing industry. A number of foreign industries have chosen to invest in San Luis Potosí in the last decades thanks to its strategic location for trade, as the city is located halfway between Mexico City and the United States border, as well as in the middle of the triangle formed by the three largest cities in Mexico: Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Monterrey.


Team Lipstick found some nice accommodation in the Motel Ankara which is on the edge of town and a good nights rest prepared them for the big haul tomorrow to Mexico City
