reach the boat. The showers are elegant and there is a little swimming pool, which feels pretty good is this heavy heat. The village is close and there is even a small marine store. Most services seem to be readily available at reasonable prices. There is even a nice beach within walking distance. A person could get very used to this place.

The girls at Banjercito spoke very little English, but they were very helpful. We had to go out and make a copy of Scott’s passport, but they told us where to find an internet café to make the copy. That was another four blocks walking in the sun. Apparently, when I applied online, they had sent Scott an email, asking for a copy of his passport. The email got stuck in his spam filter and so we never answered. Eventually, they closed the application. It still remains to be seen whether the first fee I paid will ever be refunded. There was a great deal of confusion due to the fact that we had been in the country for several weeks and had actually been in the country for a couple of weeks before checking in, due to the fact that Ensenada customs didn’t want to process all the Ha-Ha boats, so we all checked in at Cabo after the rally was over. It was a real test of my Spanish speaking abilities to explain everything satisfactorily. The woman helping me told me that she was glad I spoke Spanish because her English was pretty limited. She was very nice and we were relieved when she pulled out the sheet of official paper to finally print our permit. I had to pay a second time, but at least we had managed to acquire the permit without having to make a second trip.
