Breakfast on day 2. Instant coffee and hot flour tortillas for me. Oatmeal for Cody.

Guillermo's at BoLA. Afternoon day 2. Later 3 Canadians filled the empty seats; one a solo female bicyclist with no particular destination except south.

Fish tacos for both of us, I think. Flour tortillas for me only. "Solo tortilla harina" worked really well for me. I also said "no maize" and held my stomach and made a face at many restaurants but stopped when Cody made fun of me for the 6th or 8th time.

I have no pictures of the breakfast from Day3. I made breakfast burritos off the tailgate for the Canucks. It was fun, but a camp stove would have been better for the truck than the Whisperlite.

I present the steak fajita platter from Rice-n-beans in San Ignacio:

My best advise while traveling: use hand sanitizer before every meal. Danny Asado's in Mulege has a bottle on every table... and the best fixin's tray in Baja.


Awesome fish tacos. To get to this place, go through the city gate, then continue straight and you'll eventually be funneled right to it.

Loreto, day 5. Some awesome open air place on the main drag. Solid fixin's tray including coleslaw. The steak and cheese taco was excellent, and this was the second-best fish taco I had.

Tecate light was 5 pesos cheaper than the coke! Not a bad price for a great meal in a gringo-heavy town.

Ham and eggs with beans in Agua Verde. Not the best meal of the trip, but filling. I swear Cody gained 25MPH over the washboard in the Tacoma after this meal.

This place in Loreto north of the mission was highly recommended for fish tacos but is apparently only open for lunch.


The place directly across the street was pretty good. We drank Frescas from recyclable bottles and I tried out a 25 peso pork torta.

Breakfast in Loreto on the morning of day 7. A nice little cafe in the mission square. We watched families take their kids to school.

At the Burro in San Juanico. Kind of hard to find, but decent grub. My fish torta came with cheese and was alright. The quesadilla was pretty good.

Just off the square in San Ignacio towards the lagoon road. They have a fish pond outside so the fish is probably pretty fresh.

At Rosarito, the night of Day 8. It's a teal green bump on the Uno with a nearby
hotel. The hotel is pretty decent for 300 pesos. It seemed pretty new and the beds were comfy.

Chocomilk! I highly recommend it.

Breakfast at the same place. Lots of truckers there.

Cody, very excited about oatmeal.


Huevos rancheros. Delish!

Never, ever, run out of money in Baja. In an effort to fix the bike and get the heck out of GN, we failed to pop by the ATM for a few more pesos that would have made life easier.

We rolled into Gonzaga bay after visiting San Borja with $7 US and 202 pesos between us.

We could afford 2 beers, a quesadilla, and some bean burritos at Alfonsinas.

At Rice and Beans in San Filipe... after we drew out some more pesos and took care of the gas light on the Tacoma.

The clams were awesome.


Cody's shrimp tacos.


My fish tacos. Definitely not the best I had during the trip.


I got really annoyed by the street vendors in Rice and Beans SF. They came up onto the porch and actually went into the restaurant. Next time I'll either avoid SF altogether or at least miss the malecon. We passed a lot of awesome looking small places on the way to the nice view but we were trying to get fancy for our last meal in Baja.


Now back to the next irrelevant thing...

Alright. Back to the dogs!!!!!!!!!
I was hoping you'd have some goat photos! I thought for sure you'd have some from Agua Verde. They have so many cute goats.

Does it taste better in a glass or in a plastic bag?
