Mexican street food is among the best in the world for a hungry cyclist. During my time in Baja I have eaten many times my body weight in fish tacos and tamales.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For any unfortunate souls out there who haven't yet experienced these culinary delights, a fish taco consists of pieces of deep fried white fish (sometimes battered as in tempura) served on a warm soft corn tortilla with shredded cabbage, tomato, coriander, mayo or marie rose dressing, salsa verde and a few other salad garnishes.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A tamale is made of mashed up corn-dough steamed in a corn husk. The wrapping is discarded. Piña (pineapple) tamales are good but my favourite are rajas con queso (spicy peppers and cheese - shown in last photo in the process of being unwrapped...).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At about a dollar for one of each, you can scoff a lot of delicious calories without spending much dinero.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And with that, my dears, we are up to date! So far I've cycled approx. 53,000km in 33 countries on four continents. In a few days I'll be tearing myself away from good eating and good company in Ensenada, and going back on the road for new adventures in Mexico and beyond. More photos soon!

I've been putting the finishing touches to my blog about the Great Divide, when I came across forgotten footage of the flight I took around the Flathead Valley in Montana last October.

Todd, the pilot, shared a short version at the time, but it has since disappeared, so I cobbled together this 8 minute version from our footage.

Check it out, it was a beautiful flight!! And if you haven't already done so, please hit 'subscribe' on the YouTube channel 🙂

In July I returned to my temporary home from home, in Ensenada, Mexico, living and writing near the beach. I enjoyed playing host (or co-host, with Chema) to other cyclists via the Warmshowers network @warmshowers_org. Photos are with guests hosted between April and August.
