Viva Mexico

This will be short and sweet.

Tomorrow I'm finally doing it, although I can already here everyone at Ocean Beach saying "sure you are Justin, we'll see you tonight for dinner".

I'm heading off at 10am tomorrow on my own towards the Mexican border. Apparently I take the last American exit off to the right, around and around before getting to a big car park and a building titled "American Insurance".

In everything I've read and heard about traveling this route this is the one thing that I DEFINITELY need. Actually tonight someone said if you don't have it before you hit the border you may as well just give your car away.

See........... this is why I stayed at the pub for a few beers tonight, for that one very valuable piece of information.

I had a great last night. I spent an hour at the pub with the boys watching the Home Run hit out before heading to dinner with Tiny, James, Angela and Dara. A nice last feed of Sushi and Ice Cream before crossing over for burritos and taco's.

I'm only going over on my own, then I pick up a couple of people I met at the hostel. What started off as a lone trip down through central america has now picked up a further 4 people. Luckily we all get along well and have similar interests for this part of the trip.

2 are only staying on for the first 5 days of the journey, and the rest of us are traveling togther until we decide to go our seperate ways (or I sell them the car and bus off to Honduras).

I'm guessing that internet will be a little harder to come by down Baja, but I'll attempt to keep this as up-to-date as I can.

Thanks to everyone from OB for making my last 2 weeks one of the best times of my life. I consider myself lucky to have been able to spend the time I did with each of you, and have taken away some fantastic memories and treasured freindships. Of course, as you would probably assume from my very drawn out leaving process, I'll be back at some stage to say hi, but in the mean time stay in touch and any one is MORE then welcome to come and visit during my trip and once I return back to Australia.

Love you heaps, every fortnight, with my esky!

Dude, not much to speak of, but I've got a couple of snaps.

I'm in Mexico at the moment, Bahia de Los Angeles on the Sea of Cortez.

Will post all the pics once I get down to Cabo.
