Jorge Sanchez (Spain):
I was travelling hitchhiking around USA together with a girl from Montreal, Canada. We spent Christmas in New Orleans Bourbon Street, and the next day we left for San Antonio, in Texas, from where we planned to enter Mexico and board the train across the Barranca del Cobre, from Chihuahua to Los Mochis, and spend the New Year 1984 in some nice town in Mexico.
A truck picked up and dropped us in San Antonio, where we decided to spend a couple of days visiting its many touristsí attractions. After visiting El Alamo fortress, with a film, the five Franciscan Missions, and taking a lovely boat excursion along the River, we crossed the border with Mexico, in Laredo.
