Cave art, second try

We set out in the warm morning to find Mulegé Tours to see the local cave art.  A drive through the town was fruitless.  Chris had the bright idea to ask at a hotel.  The hotel called Mulegé Tours.  No problemo.  Will meet you in fifteen minutes.

Salvador, the driver/guide, showed up driving a taxi, his other job, with another Americano tourist.  We trooped a couple of blocks to the government office to buy permits.

The drive out to the property where the hike starts took about an hour. The road is gravel through a dry riverbed.   Salvadore stopped once for a show and tell about the medicinal qualities of plants in the area.

The cave art is on private property that belongs to a cardiologist who practices in Santa Rosalia – the copper mining town we passed through.  Once at the hacienda, we walked for 25 minutes to the “cave” – more like an overhang. While impressive, there just wasn’t much art to be seen (see pix).

A bag lunch at the hacienda and another bumpy, jolting ride back to town.

Winning the battle with AT&T was, as is now apparent, only half the battle  in the war to get a working iPhone.  The phone needs a new SIM card and it must be activated.  The little Telcel stores that are everywhere can sell SIM cards, but they cannot activate what is to them a new phone.  According to instructions I found on the web, activation must be and can only be done at a Telcel Centro store. But when I ask where is the nearest Telco Centro I get a confused look.  We’re now pinning our hopes on La Paz, the capital of BCS.

Bird of the day: American Kestrel.  Saw a pair while Salvadore was explaining how to cure cancer with a particular plant.
