Heading back to Ohio on I-75, we met Joe and Carole Ellis, who were heading home to Louisville, Kentucky from Oaxaca, Mexico. Each winter they go down to this extremely poor area of Mexico in their small XPlorer motor home, bringing along soccer balls, bicycles, and so on. They said the bicycles are sorely needed there, explaining people often carry 60 to 80 pounds of produce to village markets — over up to 12 miles. The couple also has been volunteering to help build an orphanage in Tlacalula, Mexico. Carole said seeing young children on the streets there, with no parents, really pulls at both her and her husband’s heartstrings.
