well, with more trepidation than ever before, we ventured to tecate, baja california praying for safe travel. decided to stay in tecate for the night and chose same hotel we stayed at with beth the previous year - hotel rosario.
checked in and headed towards LA Cetto winery for tour (which we'd also done with beth the previous year). enjoyed the tour, bought a few bottles of wine and some more yummy olive oil. stopped at the panaderia in tecate on the way back for some great breads and coffee and then back to hotel for a rest. noticed the hotel has at least 30 federales staying there. manager said they'd been there for 3 months and were about to head out. seemed like nice guys in greetings but since you never really know about the cops down here, we didn't ask any questions or offer information.
hit a taqueria for dinner and to bed early.
didn't take camera in winery but took photo when leaving and then drove down the road a bit further to let tanka run and check out more vineyards.
