    One of my favourite times in Bahía de Los Ángeles is early morning, just as the sun rises over the bay. Before even having breakfast, we headed to the beach for a relaxing walk. It quickly reminded me why I keep coming back to this little village. It is not only peaceful but also incredibly beautiful, even by the high standards of the Baja scenery.

    The morning brought heavy rains, but thankfully they did not last long. Soon enough the sun came out, we packed our things on the bikes and headed out.

    The lush green hills of Baja, in anticipation of further precipitation.

    Being perched up above the valley provided some of the most unique views of the trip: the fog rolling over the hills, slowly dissipating under the rising sun. All our things were generously covered in dew, so we decided to let it all dry out while we unpacked the drone and did a few flights around the area, flying over the fields and stalking the cattle.

  4. Lobsters in Baja

    We woke up at 9 am, still feeling tired. Checked the bike, did not find anything else out of place, taped off the dangling wires, ate breakfast and headed off for Tijuana. The hardest part was getting the pesos out of an ATM. It took some convincing because in their vigilance the bank flagged the activity as fraud and refused to give me money. While Alex was getting the cash, I observed a family get into a taxi cab. A man sat in the front passenger seat, and a woman joined 5 young children (all between about 3 and 8 years of age) in the back seat. Good luck with that north of the border, where every one of these kids would have needed a child seat. That would get pricey very fast.

    We took a short detour around the less touristy parts of Tijuana and then onto the scenic Mexican Highway 1. No signs of the caravan. Very disappointed.
