... down :-( there wasn't much to Guerrero - just a dusty road. So we weren't really sure what to do. We found a cafe selling juices and had a restorative breakfast reading the rough guide. Turns out Guerrero negro is where the grey whales come every January to mate and give birth, and is the best place to see them. Yay!

A long drive put us in the town of La Paz. We're couchsurfing here for a night or two. Met Alex and Candice at the supermarket and followed them to their little Mexica pad. We sat up all night and chewed the fat, while Candice made a kick ass pizza from scratch (kudos). We really hit it off and so after two days it was almost teary leaving!
