Bringing in the New Year

New Year's Eve saw me enjoying drinks with a few other couples on board Hello World, with the crews of Pisces, and Bint al Khamseen. We had a great night, chatting about boats and our travel plans, and watching the shoreside fireworks. John spent the evening eating sushi with Ron, and enduring long lines in the airport.

Now that John's back in La Paz, we've jumped into a few more boat projects, and are enjoying spending time with our new friends. We've got a few things accomplished, but we are definitely finding that this place really does have a black hole quality to it... it is hard to leave the good living of La Paz - shopping is easy, boat work is easy, the marina is cheap, the internet is good, and the language barrier is getting most places speak some english.

We've tried to leave the marina a couple of times, but have always found a very important reason to stay another night. We're planning to head to the anchorage again today, then look into hauling out the boat to paint her bottom.

Many of you have asked about our plans...we're leaning towards heading south, across to mainland Mexico, and then jumping to the Galapagos in February. Lots to do.
