24 Hours in Baja California's Capital: Mexicali

Mexicali? Baja's capital? Wrong it's Tijuana or is it maybe Ensenada, but not Mexicali. And where is Mexicali anyway? The desert right? Along the border?

Those are questions I have heard many times. People have heard of Mexicali, but not much else. They have always thought of it as some small border town on the international boundary in the hot, lifeless desert. Or a place to drive through quickly on the way to San Felipe and the Sea of Cortez.

Daniel responded to my emails promptly and assured me we were going to have a great family fun excursion day in Mazatlán.

We went back to Daniel’s store and got ready for the day. …
