Flag of Mexico  , Baja California,
Thursday, May 29, 2008

We arrived in the late afternoon and walked about 10 to 15 blocks...or so it seemed to our lodging. We are staying at a place called Posada Nuevo San Jose and it appears to be the cheapest place in this little overpriced town. The town is nice and it is not too big, but the prices seem to be from a large city and are even more expensive than that of La Paz and also of the Cabos (for the souvenirs mainly). Well, today we spent some time on the beach and just enjoyed the sun and cool breeze coming off the ocean. It seems that this town is more for the fishing types and many fishing opportunities throughout the many agencies that are spotted on every street. It also has an array of snorkeling and scuba opportunities available here.

Tomorrow, we are heading up the coast a bit in search of a nice secluded beach in which we can lie around and do nothing but enjoy the sun and surf. I must warn any woman that comes down to these parts...I guess anywhere in Baja and some parts of Mexico. The men here seem to have a problem with staring...a lot!! You would think they have never seen a woman in a bikini as they stop their cars and just ogle any woman who is brave enough to be in a bikini. It is frustrating for me and uncomfortable for Siobhan, but I do know that it is part of the culture. It happens to be a part of the culture that I detest with a passion, but oh well...the price to pay for some things. Anyway, we hope to find a nice beach that is away from the eyes that seem to pop from their heads when a woman is on them.
