get me back to mexico ASAP!get me back to mexico ASAP!get me back to mexico ASAP!

the worst burrito i have ever had. we were starving when we landed in the LA airport. we had a 4 hour layover so we found the first mexican fast food we could find. i ordered a burrito and immediately regretted it. who puts celery, peas and green beans in a burrito? i should have remembered the last time i had a burrito in an airport. denver, colorado- 2005, i couldn't eat another burrito for at least 4 months after that, i was scarred.
Leaving Mexico for Phoenix was not an equal exchange, but it had to be done. We knew our trip would eventually come to an end. We couldn't have prepared for it so Emily chose to stay in denial and I think she still is. It wasn't exactly thrilling to be back in the US but there was some stuff I did miss, like Session beer. Which I found my first day back to the states. We met my parents in Phoenix, where they vacation for the winter and then decided to ride back with them to Ohio and have a road trip through the west, since we didn't have enough money left to do our original idea of taking a road trip throughout the states. So here is Phoenix, AZ. We're back. but not ready to be.....

**Tages forgot to mention that we did miss our families and our friends, as well. and cowboy who we have not been reunited with yet. and our DS's and the Wii. but i can't think of much else.....Mexico really has it all.**
