Monday’s Links For Curious People – Going to Mexico Edition

My previous trip to Baja was very short

My previous trip to Baja was very short

This week has been pretty uneventful. I’m closing in on finishing all photo editing from four months in Europe. I’m now through Andorra and I hope be finished within the week.

This Thursday I’ll be flying to La Paz in the Baja Peninsula of Mexico for the weekend. I haven’t spent much time in Baja. I was in Cabo San Lucas briefly on a cruise ship stop, but I’d hardly call that a visit.

The other big news is that I’ve gone almost an entire week without drinking Diet Coke. Believe me when I say that this is a really big deal for me. I had two days of headaches but they are gone now and I feel much better. I haven’t had anything carbonated and I don’t plan on it in the future.
