Mundo and Gemma left for New Mexico yesterday morning, so I'm on my own again. Alamos is a beautiful little town, and I'm psyched to being treated to a free room at El Tesoro. My friends are treating me well with a killer steak dinner last night at their restaurant "Charisma". I'll try to get a travel article published in a US newspaper about the town in exchange for the hospitality we've received here. I'm thinking of blowing off returning to Mulege. I was offered the casita there for another $100 for February, and I'll spend almost $400 taking the ferry back and forth. So, I'm thinking I'll stay here to watch the super bowl tomorrow and head down the west coast on Monday.

The pool at my new digs, El Tesoro.

Typical street scene outside "the chocolate palace", the house on the left where the heiress to the Mars Candy Company lived at least some of the time.





There's a very unique ecosystem around here...



but it's threatened by buldozers clearing the land for grazing.
