Looks like we’re leaving Baja at the right time!
While it should in no way compare to the drama that is ongoing in Texas and the southern US, this latest storm makes me think that we’re leaving Baja at just the right time!
Yesterday, Rebecca and I, along with Tiago, another cyclist who is also staying at the Warmshowers home, rode to the Baja Ferries office to purchase our tickets. Our ferry departs at 8:00 PM this evening and we’ll sail overnight to Mazatlan. As you can see from the Passageweather image below, that ride will be significantly more ugly this coming weekend!
In other news, many of our friends and family have expressed concern about our safety in Mexico, and while traveling in general. Please know that we sincerely do appreciate that. Earlier today, a level-headed friend of ours shared this link with me, and I think it puts it all in perspective. The article is 5 years old so the stats may be a bit off. The point of the piece is still completely valid though, so hopefully, it makes at least some of you feel better.
