Pre-blog essplanation: I had photos for all these things, but blogger is being a douche. Said photos should be up on Facebook soonly, but I don't have time to rewrite this post. Is ok.

Ok, so very quickly because supper is shortly, we went camping under a volcano on Friday. The road was mad sandy and only one of our vehicles had 4-wheel drive, so the other one got stuck. Often.

I did many dangerous things on that trip, including eat fresh mussels...

feed my finger to a sea anemone...

and try to hike the volcano in flip flops. I made it halfway before the smooth, steep rock face covered in loose gravel sent me back. Joel survived, but barely.

There are no good pictures of the crater, or whatever the top scoopy bit of a defunct volcano is called, but we climbed down in it and there was (oddly) a cool draft coming from what should be red hot magma. Huh.

On Sunday we went to Ensenada and did the touristy thing, like check out the giant golden heads. Also, I bought a poncho. Please don't judge me.

Hrmmmmm, I need to go upload photos onto Facebook. Adios.

Since you are in Mexico, perhaps in between performing free surgeries and eating tacos and petting chihuahuas, you could buy yourself some vanilla. I have heard rumors that you can buy excellent pure vanilla in Mexico that will make your baking better than ever. But read the ingredients. Sometimes those Mexican people use spanish labels on their products instead of english so if you fall for the Pur Vanilla label, it's a brandname, not a representation of the quality of the product. Yes. Read los ingredientes. The bottles are usually plastic too, so they'll never be used against you as a weapon. This is good, no?
Have fun amiga,
