|Ever wonder why Loreto, San Felipé, Los Cabos and other select Mexican destinations come into being and grow like crazy? It's not luck or coincidence. It's all very well-planned. Thanks to Fonatur, the "institution responsible for the planning and development of sustainable tourism projects." And with respect to the Baja Peninsula specifically, there is the vision of the Escalera Nautica, the Nautical Ladder --- a mega project. As of August 2009, this project was HALTED by the Mexican federal government.||Yippie! The new Baja Almanac is out! After being out of print for 4 years and losing both my copies, I ordered 4 to make sure I have a backup and give two away as gifts.|
The dentist's office. Dr. Avila --- I love him!
This is the "back" waiting room, if you request it --- "the bar is open!"
After Leon fixed my front VW Jetta strut mounts
Race Day: assorted photos
|Assorted vehicles with different numbers of wheels, and different ways to attach them to the human body.|
I quit. Park the bikes. Let's call it a 'race' and have a beer."
"Is that you Darth Vader?"
|Tandem & baby are both OK.|
|Traffic everywhere. And being turned around. No, not turned around. Wait a minute. Yes, no, they're going straight. But wait. The other cop said to turn around.|
|But, no wait, more bicycles. Oh, heck go on thru, and everyone toot your horns ... Keystone Cops a la Rosarito Beach.|

Another cloudy, cool day.
|The "free" road project I so wanted to work on and had no luck with the contractor is complete. Next to the toll highway.|
|Brand new, well-constructed, thick 4-lane concrete from Fox Studios, from Puerto Nuevo & Primo Tapia, it is awesome!|
|And a few towers still languishing, slowly forward.|
|My friends (owners) Jim & Nicholas have been successful in opening their new restaurant / bar SPLASH and are currently expanding it due to the demand.||That's my buddy Nicholas bartending. He remembers everyone's name at the first meeting. WOW!|
|And my blanket vendor lady friend Maria that "follows" me everywhere --- even from competitor bar Bahia Cantiles.|
