And rain…did I neglect to mention that it is still raining with no end in sight. The “equipatas” arrived early this year. Last year (2006) after nearly a 10 year absence, the winter rains returned in February. In 2007, they arrived in January. We had a very few hours of sun yesterday but that’s been it. Grey skies, cold weather and no sun. The satellite photos show no break in the moist cold air covering Baja from the southwest.
Fun happenings…Michael Cope is cooking at La Copa wine bar. Good stuff too…

Opening night for tapas at La Copa.
Chef Dany Lamote from the Hotel California had his first cooking class this week at the home of Sylvia St. Clair. The students prepared a 5 course gourmet meal that included squash soup, steamed clams and mussels, roasted duck, strawberries in mint, marinated marlin filets and mango ice cream. Yummmiiieeee!
Jesse’s bistro, Buena Vida, is open and going full force serving pizzas and salads and wine. The old building was artfully restored and has a wonderful ambiance.
As noted in a previous post, La Iguana is open again on Friday and Saturday nights. Friday is reggae night with Acero Caliente.
Acero Caliente rocks La Iguana.
Looks like a really fun time!
The facade of La Iguana, trash in the street and all.
And lastly, my friend Lucia has the most wonderful turtle tatoo at the base of her very lovely neck. Check it out!
That’s all for now…
