From Here to La Paz

No time to check out the surf today. Instead, headed from Todos Santos to La Paz this morning to look at tile with our architect, Hiram, and to meet Ellie and Rob Kramer at the airport. It was incredibly hot out and I saw a poor soul on the side of the road hitch hiking. I decided to pick him up for the company. His name was Augusto from Oaxaca. He spoke no English but had some bling with a silver front tooth. In my best Spanish I learned that he has lived here alone for 2 years, worked as nighttime security guard, hitchhiked an hour each way every day (which was difficult) and was carrying a pistole in his backpack. This was a nice substitute for my morning coffee.

Spent the day looking at some amazing hand painted sinks and tile. I’ll upload some photos. Ellie and Rob were at the airport as planned. Other than some cattle crossing the road, the trip home was non-eventful. We made it to the Alegria for an afternoon nap, some turtle and fish feeding in the pond and another spectacular sunset at the beach 8:12 pm. Venus lit up the sky.

We hope you'll follow our adventure here, on Twitter and on Facebook while you enjoy your coffee (or tea) or drink a Pacifico (if you've already made it here). If the tequila gets passed around the table too much, gringos might try and spell CalyCanto like calicanto, calecanto, or cal y canto. However you spell it, you are always welcome at Calycanto Casitas. Thank you for visiting.
