A very early for us start (before 8!!) saw us in Matzalan to organise a ferry to the Baja Peninsula before 11am. Luckily we got a space on the ferry but it appeared there were no spare cabins or seats, we were told to try when we got on the boat or we would just have to sleep in the bar!
We had the usual military check and waited around having a cold beer in the scorching sun while we waited to load. On the ferry (much smaller thn the North Sea ships) we made our way to reception to put our name down for a cabin and settled into the bar and started drinking in an effort to numb the pain of a possible sleep there! We did in the end get a basic cabin, but the drinking carried on, with our new Mexican friend Juan and his trucker pals, it all got very messy and nobody felt great this morning.
The ferry should have got in at 10, it got in at 11.30 then it took 3 painful hours to get through the military checkpoint. Speaking with a guy who works for a bearing business behind us in the queue I asked how businesses could operate in this environment, he admitted it was another day lost and it was a regular issue. We decided to spend the rest of the day here in La Paz, tomorrow hopefully we meet up with Kevin Raftery's brother Kieran and his wife Norma in Loreto where we'll have a few days rest!!
