Continuing my cycling journey from Alaska to Argentina, I was over the Mexico border, and about to cycle from Ensenada to Las Canada. Here's my diary entry for the day.
The hotel included breakfast, and so I felt duty bound to eat as much as I possibly could. Lot met me at 9.00, and he led the way for a few miles in his car, with me pedalling behind. When we parted company, he gave me a card with his contact details on saying that I had a new friend in Mexico – cheers mate! I have to say I am off to a really positive start here in Mexico, in large part thanks to Carmen.
Cycling to Las Canadas
I only had a short day in mind today, and some internet research had shown me that there was a camping resort called Las Canadas some 40 kms away. At 12 bucks (150 pesos) it was overpriced, but I had received so much over the last few days, does it really matter? The last few days had been amazing, but also quite full on, so it was good to take the afternoon off and relax. The mini-mart sold Baja maps, and so I decided I would break with tradition and get one. This, combined with Lots hand written notes of suggested stops should see me through the next few weeks in Baja nicely to La Paz, where I will catch a ferry to the mainland.
My blog posts for this trip were all written as diary entries. To have a look at the rest of the blog posts from this month, go here – Cycling diaries for Mexico.
