|Some of my last views of rugged Baja California on the ferry to Mazatlan.|
|Enjoying a different form of transport to the bike.|
I had become very relaxed travelling through Baja as it is very user friendly for a touring cyclist and the people were extremely friendly but traveling over to the mainland was another step into the unknown. I didn't know much about Mazatlan except that it was a popular tourist destination, had a pretty old town and that it was a city in the state of Sinaloa, the Sinaloa drug cartel being one of the biggest cartels in Mexico!
|It did not take me long to try out the pool!|

|One of many beautiful sunsets I witnessed while in Mazatlan.|
|It wasn't all lounging by the pool. Looking pretty red faced after a run up to the local lighthouse.|
