        My stay was wonderful. The hostel is very comfortable. The kitchen facilities are the best to save some money. Is perfectly located to go to the boardwalk and main tourist strip. The only thing is the shower pressure is really bad but Ensenada as most of Baja California has water issues unfortunately.

        To copy David Letterman, below is my Top Ten "are you serious" list for Ensenada!

        10. When you want a bus to stop and pick you up, you stand on the side of the road. When you see a bus you raise your hand and they stop to pick you up. Seriously?

        9. In Mexico the standard work week is SIX days and 48 Hours. They tell me this is regulated by the Government. When you reach 65 years of age you are forced to retire. You see many elderly folks doing ...

        Action packed day in Mexico!

        I got my hair braided, which I love getting done. Jaime got some street tacos. We enjoyed some free margaritas and the views of the water and La Bufadora in action. We spent a couple of hours in this area before we had to catch the bus back to town.

        Ensenada or Empanada - you decide !!!

        ... the gall to ask what time we would get back on the bus as he couldn’t hear the guide. No you fool, none of us could hear her because you feel you should talk at every waking opportunity !! In the meantime, his wife was hacking from time to time - great … she better not pass her germs on to me !

        Once through Ensenada and the next couple of towns, we were in the country where lots of vegetables are grown - 20% for local shops and 80% exported ...

        ... for two nights and enjoyed the peace of the area. Had the best pizza I've ever had at a little spot called Mama Bears pizza just down the road. Mama Bear was Joanie, a high spirited, open minded chef from California who decided that she no longer wanted to work in a high end restaurant in Santa Monica, and she no longer wanted her tax dollars contributing to the war machine that the USA has become. She basically said screw it, I'm ...

        ... some 8-10 years back.

        We did our usual bush shower thing with hot water from the kettle over a wood fire there being loads of driftwood on that lee shore. We cooked up a storm in the potjie (dutch over) and wandered the beach in both directions, our only neighbours being the occasional sea bird or local black vulture. Being tucked in behind a huge chunk of bush kept us out of the wind and the only minor disturbance during the night was the occasional truck way off on the ...
