On leaving San Ignacio, I took this photo of the Old Mission there, which is located in the main square.
Cycling uphill, and into a headwind is not eactly my favourite pastime, although I seem to do an awful lot of it come to think about it. To make matters worse, my MP3 player decided to start behaving erratically, and would lock up emitting a high pitch screech. Some people might say that the sort of music that I listen to sounds like this anyway however. The 20 km downhill was ok though, so it all worked out in the end. I am now on the Sea of Cortes side of Baja, which is a bit weird, because now the sea is on my left as I cycle south. For thousands of miles its been on the right, so it will take a bit of getting used to! The wind was incredibly strong, and had I been able to find somewhere to pitch a tent, it would soon have turned into a kite. I managed to find the shabbiest looking hotel for 200 pesos, and despite the hotel looking like it would fall down at any minute, the room was not too bad. I watched a TV program called El Pantera in the evening. I'm not entirely sure what it was about, but it seemed to have a lot of barely dressed women running around and dancing, while a macho stud type (Pantera) went around the city beating people up and stealing cars. Marvelous entertainment!!
