Jim Fest 2008 Road Trip ~ Day 1 ~ La Paz to San Jose del Cabo!

Yahoo, it's the start of the Jim Fest Road Trip!
Dave and Kellie took the 8 am shuttle in, so we were on the road by 9 am.
It was very, very green in the mountains South of La Paz, with beautiful bright yellow and vibrant red flowers.
Stopped at our favorite roadside restaurant in San Bartolo (for Marvin).Note to self: split the order of machaca and eggs between two people next time. Huge.

Then on along the "East Cape" and in to San Jose del Cabo.
Found Hotel Posada Terranova quickly and even a parking space right in front!
The let us check in early ~ yipee, so immediately set up the bar.



Notice the perfectly matching mermaids.






Then to Baja Brewing Company!
The whole reason for San Jose!
Unfortunately, they were out of Pale Ale...
Poor Jim!
I enjoyed a raspberry lager!





Still disgustingly full from breakfast, it was time for a walk.
So we meandered around town and showed Dave and Kellie the church, town square and beautiful buildings.And found a tequila store complete with tequila tastings...The guys tried a few and the girls tried a couple of the flavored ones.
They had jamaica, pomegranate, vanilla, almond, some fruits we had never heard of, coffee and more.
Very interesting!

Then figured we should have a pomegranate margarita at El Comal, where we had our dinner on our sailing trip down to La Paz.
















More meandering.
More beautiful doorways and buildings, along with some strange artwork.









It was also ELECTION DAY IN THE USA, so back to the rooms for CNN watching and chicken foot dominoes.Once we felt that the results were going in the right direction, it was time to head out for dinner.
San Jose del Cabo is known for art galleries ~ many with some beautiful items!Ate dinner at an Italian restaurant in a lovely courtyard ~ pizza, minestrone soup and lasagna.
Walked back to the hotel along another street, enjoying the window displays, doorways and lighting.













More CNN watching.
Oh what RELIEF!
Now if only the next 77 days or however long it is until the new president takes office would just FLY BY!
In the shots of The White House, we kept hoping to see a moving van pulling up.
Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out Mr. Shrub.

I love listening to music from my iPod while I'm on the move out, be it on the bus, the indoctrinate, or unbiased while doing groceries. For that common sense, I every requirement a creditable twosome of stereo earphones with me, and of course on some days I'd like my earphones to be an whistles, where I twin it with my outfit championing that day. So I procure a doublet of plotter earphone every other month. Recently, I bought the [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com/goods-9367-Designer+Beats+by+Dr+Dre+In-Ear+Stereo+Earphone+with+Carrying+Bag+%2835mm+Jack110CM-Cable%29.html]Designer Beats by Dr. Dre In-Ear Stereo Earphone with Carrying Bag (3.5mm Jack/110CM-Cable)[/url] from DealtoWorld.com in their Speakers & Earphones section. DealtoWorld.com has change my lapse online shopping site that I visit frequently to buy whatever I may need. Succeeding to the DIY trust in or the mall has become relatively less pleasurable than browsing owing to the wide variety of things at DealtoWorld.com. I would also like to get stereo speakers chestnut day for my home.

These author beats that I bought comes with a carrying dispatch-, which makes the designer earphone definitely convenient to inventory and carry. I've uploaded a pair of pictures of the draughtsman stereo earphone and the carrying bag so you can see what comes with the earphone launch I bought from [url=http://www.dealtoworld.com]DealtoWorld.com[/url].

On some days, I'd like to hearken to righteous music with a hard-working bass, so I also do invest in godlike pairs of stereo earphone like Sennheiser. They're not so much designer beats, but absolutely good as a service to getting into the music. Although the designer beats I bought from DealtoWorld.com is not a heady disgrace like Sennheiser or Sony, it does noiseless stumbling-block at large outside blast, making in search listening pleasure. The style the author earphone contours around the ears also makes seeking comfortable wear, and the goodness point give the Artist Beats aside Dr. Dre In-Ear Stereo Earphone with Carrying Lookout (3.5mm Jack/110CM-Cable) I bought from DealtoWorld.com is that it comes with multiple sizes of ear tips and supernumerary sensitivity buds. These things are unemotional to manage so I'm contented the interior decorator beats came with it. I can utilize these appreciation tips and buds on my other pairs of earphone too. The carrying on is of ambit a crucial gratuity to unceremonious storage and portability.

I like to match this doublet of creator beats close to Dr. Dre with my pink spaghetti strap and white shorts, I reckon it goes ostentatiously with this outfit. While waiting in queues or waiting for the treatment of a new zealand mate as a service to a lunch place, I make light of my favorite Wire-tap Tapping Drastic distraction on my iPod Touch with this brace of stereo earphone. The outward crash gets blocked in so cooked through, and coupled with the hugely engrossing stopcock game, I don't gloaming mind when my ally arrives! Cooked through, that's what a merit pair of stereo earphone should do, I believe. However, I do make it a sense to let inseparable earphone abroad of my regard whenever I cross the way, or when I'm walking on a to some degree unvisited road. This I do for the benefit of safety reasons. I effective wouldn't yearn for to sway into an casualty or be in harm's way justifiable because I was wearing my deviser stereo earphone and couldn't listen to liable to be chat up advances my way.
