We are currently in Guanajuato Mexico right now, and lost WiFi at our apartment that we are renting. So our uploads are slowed down by trips to the coffee shop.
We have a backlog of pictures and stories from Yelapa, Tequila, and Guanajuato to post up in the next week. We will be leaving for San Miguelle de Allende this Sunday, and hope to be back to updating.
(PS, the picture is the heart of a blue agave plant, used to make tequila. We had a wonderful tour at Cofradia Distillery earlier this week, more about it in our post.)
I will admit that everything that I knew about Mazatlán I learned from watching the Love Boat. In planning our trip from La Paz to Yelapa (more about Yelapa in another post), we decided to stay just a couple of nights in Mazatlán. Originally it was going to be one night, but I read a few comments on a blog about the pretty downtown with a square and a church, so we decided to stay for two nights instead so we could visit the sights. We stayed for three nights because I fell for Mazatlán.

While planning this trip, we knew we would leave Baja at some point, and we had a choice, we could drive over a thousand miles back up where we had already been or put the car on the ferry and ride across the Sea of Cortez.

It’s Friday night and we are packing our things up as we leave Mazatlan tomorrow morning. We’ve spent the past week in two different beach towns, La Paz and Mazatlan, and rode a ferry overnight to cross the Sea of Cortez (the longest time I can remember being on a ship of any type).

Sorry for not updating, we have been trying to catch up, and thought we would be able to at our current location (Yelapa, Mexico) but WiFi is down due to some weather issues earlier. We just have T-Mobile roaming data, which isn’t much faster than old dialup modems.
We are off to snorkel today. More updates when we get back to WiFi.

Matt and I are in San Jose del Cabo for a couple of days. It’s a really cute little town that is really worth exploring. Sadly, it seems that most of the people who come here stay on the grounds of their all-inclusives and don’t bother to visit this gem of a town. There is great little art and foodie scene growing here with an organic market, lots of great art galleries featuring local Baja and Mexican artists, and really delicious restaurants.

When Neeley and I started planning for our trip around the world, we wanted to start with something that was just sitting around at a beach and decompressing from our previous life. We chose Todos Santos because it looked like a good place to relax and chill. It has been and we’ve had a wonderful time staying here, going to the beach and sampling fish tacos. This past week we managed to hang out at the beach most of the time, but we also took time to visit San Jose del Cabo, and also started planning the next stage of our trip. We also survived hurricane/tropical-storm Blanca as she passed through. Thankfully, she caused very little damage.
But our plan is to see the world, not just one town. So we move on, heading out of Todos Santos onward to San Jose del Cabo tomorrow.

One of the joys of hanging out in a place for more than a few days is that we don’t feel rushed to do anything. It also helps to have extra time when we are also trying to do work on super slow internet. It forces us to work much slower than we are used to and this sets the pace for just about everything else that we do.

Announcing our next photography workshop: “Christmas Italian Style”
A 2 on the Run photography workshop lead by award-winning photographers, Neeley and Matt Drown

Imagine Rome, one of the worlds most beautiful and photographic cities, dressed in glorious holiday lights and colors, the shop windows filled with candies and toys, and her famous market stalls overflowing with delicious Roman treats of the season. Now imagine photographing Rome without the overwhelming crowds of tourists. But why imagine? Why not join us as we photograph Rome and all of its rich visual history and beautiful celebration of the season? Celebrate in the city that gave us both the Pagan holiday and the Christian holiday that we now call Christmas.

Neeley and I have been in Todos Santos now for a week. After getting the requisite sun burn on day two, we had to take a break from the sun.
