We have arrived in La Paz our last place on the Baja penninsula after a month and around a 1000 miles of desert cycling. As we came into Baja Sur the desert gave way to old oasis towns such as San Ignacio and Mulege, which had little town squares and misions, giving us an idea of what was to come in Mexico. Our ride has followed the main highway one and although busy with traffic in places we are nearly always greeted with waves and friendly horns. We have really enjoyed trying new foods and trying out our very bad Spanish! Our next stage will take us across on the ferry to the mainland, where we will begin our big climb up up and up into the mountains to Durango…….
