Where I stayed
21/01/2013: the car has been making some strange noises, so Salvadore took Gary up to his mechanic in this tiny village. Starter motor gone and water pump leaking, so they left the car to be fixed. We went for a long walk on the beach and Salvadore rang us to say he was driving the mechanic into Tijuana 45 mins away as they needed to get parts for the starter motor
Salvadore has a self contained unit here which you can rent for 6 months for $600/month, very tempting.
22/01/2013: Today we went to Ensenada and wandered around the city checking out all the tourist shops which are many as the cruise liners come down here from San Diego full of Americans. The locals loved the fact that we were Aussie, and when we explained that we could not buy as we cannot carry they were just happy to try and talk about Australia, they are fascinated by our accent.
27/01/2013: Past 3 days raining so just hanging out with Salvador and Yolanda and watching endless movies, Gary happy as a pig in mud. We feel like part of the family. Today Yolanda's son, his wife and her adopted son and his wife came for lunch. We were invited as well, great time, home cooked Mexican food - so yummy. they spoke very little English but we had so much fun translating. Gary had them in hysterics, trying to speak Spanish using his Spanish book but they said he sounded Japanese.
We are heading south tomorrow but sad to be leaving these beautiful people, we will miss them.
