Only in Mexico

We were driving home from Mexico when we reached the border town to the U.S., the husbird gets pulled over for speeding.  The speed limits in Mexico are ridiculous.  First of all they are in kilometers, so you have to figure out what they actually are.  We were on the outskirts of town and the speed limit was about 25 mph and the husbird was going probably about 39 mph.  The speed limit should probably be 40 to 50, but I digress.

Can you believe it?  He must have been really hungry. Ha ha.  It doesn't hurt that the husbird speaks Spanish.

Here's a funny time lapse video of us traveling.  We were obviously eating oranges.  Maybe we should have offered some oranges to the cop as well.
