      This was the beginning of my first ever trip to Mexico. The staff were very helpful, even calling a cab for me on the morning I left.

      I would stay here again if I was in Ensenada. The people that run the hostel are lovely.

      I set the alarm early so we could be off the ship before 9am ready for our shore excursion. However I crawled into bed late last night after attending to several emails and updating the blog … consequently I was a little sleepier than usual today.

      After Doug showered and dressed, he said he could see Dolphins in the water not far from the ship as we slowly made our way to the dock. He also thought he saw seals – could be ...

We carefully picked our way through Tecate after picking up some Baja Wines. It took awhile to find the border crossing, but when we did find the checkpoint it was not crowded. We pulled right up to the customs booth and was asked for our passports. The inspector commented that Maryland was a long ways away and I agreed. He then ...

      I only have a few more "free" wifi minutes so I'll close for now and continue later when we reach Tucson. Hope you all have kept warm and safe in the awful weather we heard you had last week.

      ... found there. The mining ceased over 60 years ago as the ore ran out but much of the old mining infrastructure remains, quietly rusting away in the salty air. There is apparently an effort now in place to restart a smaller mining operation to sift the remains of what is left for any worthwhile quantities of copper. The locals are treating this as bit of a joke apparently. The town’s old, largely wooden houses built from Pacific north west timber from Canada are attractive. ...

      ... is not a cactus at all. This plant looks like nothing else and while it is often described as a giant carrot - which was exactly as Neil first called it - seemingly growing upside down, with its root sticking up to fifty feet in the air. It has a trunk and leaves, but no branches until it's at least a hundred years old. It's also one of the slowest growing plants in the world, at the rate of a foot every ten years, which means a mature fifty-footer may be ...
