The Mexicali border line was a long wait. Didn’t want to drive in the dark. I’m staying the night in Calexico at California Suites. It’s right between the police station and the Lady of Guadalupe church. I think I’m safe & sound. It is cleaner than the Motel 6 I stayed last night. Plus has a frig and coffee maker which Motel 6 did not. I made it without a coffee maker since I brought my camp stove along. That worked beautifully for my drip cone morning coffee. I know how to take care of my coffee needs!
Tonight I’m chill’in with HBO, watching Get Out , trippy and good. Really looking forward to spending tomorrow in San Felipe on the Sea of Cortez and finally eating that fish taco. “Northern Baja is the original home of the fish taco, with Ensenada and San Felipe in a constant argument over which is it’s true birthplace.” Moon Baja Travel Guide Tomorrow is the Day of the Virgin Guadalupe (Día de la Virgen de Guadalupe). It is a popular Catholic feast that celebrates the belief that a man encountered the Virgin Mary, Mexico’s patron saint, in Mexico City on December 9 and 12, 1531. I might get to see some parades or other festivities.
