Gently down the street,
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.
We've had a crazy couple of weather days! Rain, rain and more rain . . . which is extremely rare for Baja and which has made the desert a very green place.
Yesterday we spent most of the day in & around the hotel. It was actually quite lovely to have a nice relaxing day of reading and writing. And the rain cooled things off a bit which was also nice.

Typical of impatient drivers, especially the ones with big trucks that can negotiate ditches and curbs, a couple of them went into the lanes for northbound traffic, trying to get ahead of everyone. Not taking into consideration that the northbound traffic is still trying to get through -- and not really caring until the police came along and put a stop to it. But by then a whole bunch had followed their lead until there was a long, long lineup of vehicles in the wrong lane.
|Big truck budging in line! Grrrrr . . . .|
|Police on the way to organize stupid drivers.|
|Are we going to make it?|
|Through the worst of it.|
Long story short, we made it to La Paz. We had a short respite but now it's pouring again and our hotel owner says she hasn't seen rain like this in 15 years!
