Three in Rick the Dick's hostel (Don't EVER stay at Coyote Cal's Hostel in Ejido Erendira).
The other seven days I spent at Ron's house. Ron is a 58-year-old Californian surf bum who has retired down here. I met him on the beach and he took me in. I've spent most days surfing, fishing and sheltering from the Santa Ana easterlies that have blown so hard that the Baja desert now resides in Ron's garage. At least it did till we swept it all out, a task that took three days. The winds have also brought fires: part of the same lot that have been sweeping Southern California. There is smoke in the air...
...but the waves are still nice .
I've scored a tent, so the next few weeks are going to be spent camping all the way down the coast here.
I love Baja. I want to live here.
