Difference - Ordeal - Adventure

"The only difference between an ordeal and an adventure is your attitude!" and we just had a great adventure. We drove through downtown Ensenada without any brakes! Yep, none at all. It was a pure adrenaline rush - I loved it!! Rachel not so much. I just used the transmission and emergency brake to slow and stop. From the way people in Ensenada traffic drive, I think a good number of them where driving the same way.

I LOVE BAJA!! I always think it, but sometimes I want to say it outloud. Just got back from a trip the get the brakes fixed. Rachel and I thought it a good idea to go to a dealer and not just any mechanico on the side of the road. So with the help of our good buddy Oscar, he recommended the Michelin dealer in front of the Ensenada Costco. They had the car on the rack for about an hour, had all 4 tires removed and the TOTAL BILL was $176 PESOS. That is about $15 dollars for my Americana amigos. We now have perfect brakes and all is great in our universe...however the drive home was boring compared to the drive there. July 6, 2015
