Travel Blogs from Mazatlan
Mazatlan has a big expat community, mostly retired Americans and Canadians (known as snowbirds) and is also a busy port for cruise ships passing through so I was firmly back in tourist land but Maztlan still has plenty to discover off the beaten track.
My visit to Mazatlan finished up with a delicious seafood dinner at a restaurant on the beach courtesy of Ana. I had a great time staying with Ana, she has ...

She ended up enjoying a bowl of refried beans for most of her dinner meals. Her great-grandma Rosie is Mexican so we joked that she must be embracing her Mexican heritage :)

The cop also seemed to make conversation asking if we had family, what we did, and said ...
... we didn't get our passports stamped, which is annoying because 1) it's cool to get loads of stamps and 2) we hope that doesn't mean they're going to assume that we have been in the States since the time we landed in Miami a month and a half ago and then try and make us leave or something within the 90 day period as they see it.
Got to Tucson about 7.30am. It is flat and very hot. Our hotel is possibly one of the coollest places on earth (in both senses).
