Generosity and friendliness are the hallmarks of Mexico!

Mark receives a surprising offer…!

February 28, 2013 – We are always impressed, surprised and taken aback by the extraordinary generosity and warmth we experience with the locals here in Mexico.  Yesterday, while walking into the dollar store in Zihuatanejo, Mark noticed a Cagiva motorcycle.  After admiring it and taking some photos of it, the owner walked out of the store towards us.

“You want to take it for a spin?” He asked Mark with a grin, holding out the keys.

What??  Mark laughed incredulously and said no.  But the guy insisted he at least throw a leg over it to check it out.  So Mark hopped on and we stood around talking motorcycles with this fellow for a few minutes. Then he put on his helmet and disappeared on his bike, and we continued on into the store.  Honestly, that would never ever happen back home.
