For those playing our latest contest, we’ve arrived and our first road trip was a relatively safe one!  Our taxi ride from the airport to our resort was in a newer Mercedez Benz full size van.  It had lap and shoulder belts with head restraints for 7 passengers and they had a useable booster seat, too.  I say “relatively” safe because taxi drivers here are no different than in Chicago or New York or probably anywhere.  Having one cellphone in each hand and two conversations going isn’t the safest way to travel lol, even if all the passengers are correctly restrained;-)  On the right you can see a shot of the interior.  Internet access with the local SIM card is slow, but it is working.  So, I hope to post the winning number within a few days.   If you’ve been waiting for hints, don’t wait too long!  Now keep in mind that van we had today doesn’t count for the contest, I won’t know what our official tour vehicle will be like until tomorrow! 

Did I mention the bar on the beach has Carlsbad on tap?  It just doesn’t get any better than this!
