Now we’re getting to the real birthday celebration and some of you may be thinking, “You must be crazy going to Mexico, yes?” Despite all the horrible warnings from the State Department about where not to travel in Mexico, if you had to go, the worst places were probably the States of Jalisco and Michoacán.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TurtleExpedition/~4/yb6L9qRplfs" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

So now you're looking at news with a slight time delay. Following our visit in San Diego and with our truck and car safely stored at our friends’ home, the next day we found ourselves sitting in the waiting room at the Los Angeles airport. What a zoo, except no monkeys and elephants. We ended up in a section that was being rebuilt. It looked like something in a third-world country.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TurtleExpedition/~4/NvaOfRxBtFY" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Okay so we’re a few months behind, but really, news is only relevant to whether you've heard it or seen it previously, so before we return to Greece and onward to our 40,000 mile expedition across Asia, following the Silk Road, we have to tell you a little bit about my birthday. It was the big 7-0, so I was told I could do anything I wanted that was legal. Humm---<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/TurtleExpedition/~4/TON04v4dEfs" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
