Photo Of The Day

Our friend and unofficial tour guide of the San Luis Potosi paddling scene, Carlos “Xharlie” Castillo piggybacking on the van after changing a flat tire in the sugar cane fields on the way to the Rio Salto. On the way back from the river that day, Oscar’s van broke down in the sugar cane fields, leaving us stranded on the side of a rural road in the dark until the wee hours of the morning.
