i have visted Monterrey regularly for about 26 years - my mom is from there and i have about 5 aunts and uncles that still live there.
last Christmas was the first time in 7 years that i did not travel from Houston to Monterrey via car.
also, last Christmas was the first time in 37 years that my dad did not travel from Houston to Veracruz to see HIS family.
i miss my family and i miss taking road trips there, but there is absolutely no way that i would drive either one of my cars across the border with my family.
i "have" thought about flying, but it's only a thought.
i think my days of going to Monterrey are over
