Hola Mexico! We're finally here and it feels good. Colder than we imagined, but good. We're wearing parkas and beanies, and two days ago it snowed for the first time in Cedros Island (200 miles south of here). Fortunately the spicy tacos are keeping us warm.
Arriving in a Ensenada has really made it feel like we're cruising. We're in a new country. The language, the currency are different. We've connected with other cruisers at the marina, at the laundromat, at the local taco stand, and at the bar -- the two-for-one margarita night pulled in all the gringos!
After two days of bureaucratic wrangling -- which mostly consisted of sitting and waiting, singing our names, and paying fees -- we and the boat are now officially in the country.
We're sharing the harbor with multiple cruise ships, and Ensenada is geared towards tourists, with lots of security and blocks and blocks of gift shops. But tucked between the tee-shirt stands are some astounding taquerias. A highlight has been the mole tacos at La Comadre. They were so mouth watering we lunched there two days in a row.
If the current weather window holds, we'll be headed south in the next day or two, hopping down the Baja coastline on our way to Cabo and Puerto Vallarta.
