|On the left is the yacht that Steve Job's built. It is unique looking. We heard that|
when it went to the fuel dock a month ago, it took 3+ days to fill and nobody else
could get fuel during that time.
|Our neighbor at anchor. A very new Nordhavn 86'. Expensive, and nice.|
|A pretty sunset welcomed us to La Paz our first night|
|The lights of La Paz. It's a big city, with lots of big city noises at night, all night.|
Music, partying, sirens, loud motorcycles and cars, jet airplanes, etc.
|One of the local boat yards. It's been in business quite a while!|
|Cindy about to tackle a very large chicken chimchanga|
at Bandidos Restaurant.
|Kevin enjoying a frozen Mexican treat. We haven't ever seen|
these back home. There are a lot of different candies and
treats in Mexico that we don't have back home.
|Mega yacht that was next to us in the marina. We have heard that it is (or was)|
one of the yachts owned by Carlos Slim (the richest man in the world at times).
|The biggest dinghy I've ever seen. It has an inboard motor! It belongs to one|
of the mega yachts here and it is registered in the British Virgin Islands.

April 18 Update: We were going to leave today but our telcel banda ancha internet device stopped working last night. We lowered the dinghy and went to the marina this morning. There is a small telcel store a block away. Unfortunately, they could not help us and the lady that speaks very good English was not there. So we had to take a cab to the huge telcel facility a few miles away. It is located right next to the very large Mega grocery store. The young man at the telcel store was able to help us get back up and running with internet access. Turns out that we ran out of data on our monthly plan in the 5 days we were in La Paz. $17.00 later we now have enough on our data plan to last us another month. After we were done with telcel we did a little shopping in Mega. We will leave La Paz tomorrow.

|We bought some delicious Granny Smith apples, direct from|
Washington state :-)
|"Mega" is much like the large American stores. More than just groceries.|
Very well stocked with great prices. Very clean too.
