We are leaving Baja today; mainland Mexico awaits! Since our last journal entry we’ve traveled from Baja Norte to Baja Sur, lounged around on beaches, kayaked in a beautiful bay, watched as whales splashed in the waves, eaten raw clams with locals off of the top of an old cooler, taken two weeks of Spanish classes, met loads of interesting characters, had a few incredibly mild mishaps, caught a few unsuspecting fish, and managed to record a grand total of 1 podcast. Baja has been wonderful to us! We are exceptionally fortunate to have had the opportunity to spend so much time in this lovely place. If you are planning a trip down here, please feel free to reach out to us for recommendations.
Baja is a beautiful place, full of kind, patient and curious people. The driving method is chaotic, yet understanding. The food is simple, yet packed with flavor. The Seas are dangerous, yet project tranquility. Just like the weather from coast to coast on this peninsula, one’s experience can range from crazed and blisteringly hot to mild and completely relaxed.
We’re a little bummed out to have not recorded more podcasts, but timing, circumstance and the personal preferences of several interesting people did not allow for that this time. No worries though, there is still a whole shit-load of road ahead of us, and likely many other guests will be sitting in front of our microphones in the near future!
Gracias por tus playas salvajes, gente extraña y chicharrones hermosos.
Andrés, Stephanie y Pelé
