33 pesos to be exact, the price of the “professional barber scissors” we found, there was no going back now.
Hard to believe it is Christmas in a few days! Hope you are all eating lots of delicious Christmas cookies and drinking mulled wine. Bit hard to get those things around here, but there is always an endless supply of tacos and Tecate beer once you hit a pueblo or town. So we are doing good...
The last time I was this scared Andrea was screaming as a wolf was on her tail. I didn’t use my bear spray this time but it was in my hand just in case.
We spent a few days in San Diego to get ready (new bearings for the bikes) and relax a little before crossing the border into Mexico. Staying with Ann and Brad (warmshower hosts) was an absolute highlight – they made us feel so comfortable and at home it was hard to leave. Brad’s pancakes – which he made twice for us – were beyond amazing.
But the road was calling...
Before we crossed the border to the states we bought a new bottle of sunscreen and then promptly put it away for two months. Now that we’re in sunny California our all natural sunscreen from Canada has separated into coconut oil and zinc and as much shaking as we can do will not mix these components back together. We’ve been using it for the last couple of weeks because we’re too cheap to throw it out but it’s pretty obvious that we need to find a replacement. So we pull into a trendy looking sunscreen shop and try not to spend too much money. And that’s when I see it, “GLUTEN FREE” the label that has made it’s way onto products such as toilet paper and motor oil. Maybe it makes sense, maybe it doesn’t I didn’t even Google it. Long story short, we bought sunscreen later that day at a grocery store and I’m pretty sure there’s gluten in it.
