Flag of Mexico  ,
Monday, July 16, 2007

Well the overnight boat was a breeze, cabin to ourselves and the cutest Mexican lassie to keep us entrtained, she was amazingly patient with our Spanish and we had a lovely time talking to her.
Now we are on Baha Peninsula, it sounds breezy methinks. The country on the bus trip up here was amazing, cactus and boojum trees, really dry with amazing ocean vistas.
It seems a cartoon landscape, I say this beacuse... there are roadrunners here!! Yes, they are real. We haven't seen any yet but I will be keeping a serious 'meep-meep' eye out for them. And lots of those tall jutting breakaway ridges that are stylised in cartoons.
We have landed at the most gorgeous hotel a home away from home, and are going to enjoy the marine park while we are here (largest in the Americas, I believe), snorkeling and other oceanic activities.
We know we are getting closer to the USA as the cars are getting bigger, and the amount of US tourists has suddenly increased, they are all big Texans and Californians, here with their Big Cars and Big Boats here to catch Big Fish. I have been away a while, the cars are freaking me out, who needs a car THAT big, the bonnets are chest height!
Also I was transported back to Bunno this evening by all the boys out in their cars with stereos blaring doing 'bog laps' up and down the malecon/beachfront.
We did a trip out to the Loreto Bay Mrine Protected Area, and had some good snorkeling saw loads of starfish, sealions, and rays, then parked up at the most beautiful beach encountered on the whole trip so far, also the least accessible, but even better for it I´m sure.
We saw a French couple we have been tandem travelin with and see everywhere (but who are not friendly) and they saw Manta Rays and Dolphins so we were spewing, but they didn´t go to the nice beach, so everyone´s a winner.
Caught the bus to Mulege, when stopped by the army, the only bags checked were the Gringo packs, starting to feel persecuted. The soldier asked Simon - so, do you do drugs? in a friendly conversational way. Yeah man, love them, my pack is full of them have a look! Whatever!
