April 16, 1996: The Mexican Border
It's like we parachuted onto a different planet. We've spent a long time
preparing for this, but we aren't prepared. All we can do is walk. It doesn't

Finally we find the trail and walk in hot, hilly terrain until our legs
rebel. No amount of stretching seems to appease them.
