The sunrise was beautiful this morning, and the four of us were on the road by 8:00.
We pulled into a gas station just at the beginning of El Centenario. Tom and Sarah were, of course, already there, but said they hadn't been there long. We got some yogurt, and I ate my cookies.
From there we rode much easier the last 6 miles to La Paz. At the Bienvenido La Paz sign, we stopped for the photo op.
We rode the rest of the way to the Malecon, a bike and pedestrian pathway along the waterfront.
Next order of business was food. There was a nice looking restaurant just across the street. I had Aguacate Rellanos con Camerones and some Tacos de Pescado. It was all delicious.
We followed the route to the Hotel Pension California. It's basically a hostel. We weren't sure we would stay here, but the wifi is good, and the rooms are cheap. The four of us got the last room, and it happens to be a room for 4, as in, there are four double beds! Yes, it's a big room!
I posted the last four days of blogs, and then made our plane reservations. We will be flying out of San Jose Del Cabo on Feb 20th. We'll arrive in Portland on the 21st. We are taking the same flight as Tom and Sarah which will be a blast! We have a 15 hour layover in Houston, but who cares!
That gives us plenty of time to ride the East Cape to Cabo, with time to stop and go snorkeling at the many beautiful beaches. It'll still be a dirt road, but hopefully the really hard part is behind us.
We are not leaving La Paz until the 10th. That means we have two full days off to explore the city. We saw a Burger King. I wonder if there is a Subway???
Justin is here, and so is Tim. Unfortunately, I think they are both leaving tomorrow. Justin, and a hiker named Chaz went to dinner with us (interesting side note about Chaz--yesterday, he was camping out, and in the middle of the night, woke up to a skunk biting his arm. He has spent today getting multiple shots against possible rabies. On top of that, it is his 60th Birthday--what a way to spend a birthday!). Well, dinner was more like something akin to a pub crawl. We started at one place with drinks and nachos. Then we stopped at a tamale stand. Finally, after a rather lengthy walk, we ended up at a taco place. Of course, after tacos we had to have ice cream! Then we walked back to the hotel. I'm still very full!
