Viajar con nuevos amigos! Part 1: Travelling down the Baja with new friends!

From San Quintin we continued down on Highway 1 with destination Bahiá de Los Angeles: 315 km passing nearly nothing except cactus and desert! Close to El Rosario, before we entered the Valle de los Cirios (named by the type of cactus Valley of Candles), two hitch hikers and their dog where waiting for a ride. They wanted to the next town and of course we picked them up.

We had nearly five hours drive to learn them better to know. Daniela, Roberto and their dog Beneno lived long time close to Mexico City and the last four years they live in and travel the whole Baja the California. They gave us plenty of tips and suggestions for good destinations. We asked them, if they are busy and if they like to join us to the Bahiá de Los Angeles. They’ve never been there and so we became two new travel friends + Beneno.

That day we broke the first rule for travelling in Mexico, which people in US recommended us: Never drive in the dark! After sunset we arrived at the campground, but 500 peso was pretty too much for one night. Roberto suggested asking the local people there to find a free campsite for example at the public beach. We went back to the town and then the third person recommended us a place about 10 kilometers away called Playa La Gringas.

It was completely dark and there is no way to find this place, when you are not a local or speak perfectly Mexican. An old fisherman, who lived close at this place, showed us the way for camping. He only takes 50 Peso for cleaning the place after leaving. In total darkness Daniela and Roberto put up their tent, we created a fire place and prepared the fresh fish from the morning. Delicious! A little party with a few beers rounded the long day perfectly.

Oh my god! When we woke up in the morning, we saw what the darkness last night shaded: A gorgeous clean and lonely beach! And we parked directly in front of the beach! 😀 Of course we have to stay there another day! Rest of the day was relaxing, enjoying, swimming, fishing and watching a dolphin, sea lion and plenty of other animals.

Next morning we continued, entered the Baja California Sur and decided to stay on night at a campsite in Guerrero Negro, an industrial town, not very special. Main reason was the desire for a shower. 😉 At evening we went into the town to find something local for dinner. Daniela and Roberto introduced us a bit to the different Mexican cousin. It was delicious, but Kali lost a piece of one tooth.

We looked for a dentist next day and many thanks to Daniela for acting as a translator. Elsewhere was no way to communicate with the dentist. It wasn’t a big problem and Kali was glad to get it fixed. After midday we went on and decided to visit the rock paintings, an UNESCO world heritage, in San Francisco de la Sierra.

  1. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  2. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  3. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  4. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the simplest factor to remember of. I say to you, I definitely get irked whilst people consider worries that they just don’t realize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top as well as outlined out the whole thing with no need side effect , other people could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks
