"I dream of rain... elay elay, I lift my gaze to empty skies above. 
I close my eyes... elay elay, this rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love." Sting (1999)

The Virgin of Guadalupe has provided. Depending on who you ask, either it's a coincidence or answered prayers. Either way, the end result is the same. There is finally rain in the desert exactly a day after the festival to commemorate her birthday. 

Northern Mexico has been in the press lately raising awareness of the 2+ million people suffering from "the worst drought in 80 years".

Guerrero Negro is nothing to write home about. A working town whose claim to fame is the largest salt mine in the world and whale-watching if your timing is right. Ours wasn't! We were at least a month too early as the gray whales had only just left Alaska's shores. Oh well, maybe next time.
