October 31, 2010 – We are now camped out at Hugh & Carol Kramer’s house, owners of Discover Baja, located not far from the office in University Heights. Last night they took us to an Oktoberfest for a great meal then off to a tour of the famous and historic Coronado Hotel. The Hotel was built in 1888 and is really quite grand, right on the Pacific Ocean. There was a Halloween wine & cheese event on the go as we arrived, what great costumes we saw. We then headed off for Little Italy in San Diego and stopped for some delicious gelato at Papalechie. Our entertainment nightcap was a drive through the Gaslamp Quarter where young folks were definitely partying hard dressed in every imaginable costume. This drive up 10 blocks took us 40 minutes and was well worth the price of admission; my estimate was 20,000 revellers that included a street rave. Short skirts, fancy nylons, and spiked high heels of many variations seemed a common theme amongst the girls (not that I noticed) and the crowd seemed very well behaved with only one young lad sitting on the sidewalk in handcuffs, these policemen were not in costume. This was a fun evening, tomorrow we are off to Day of the Dead celebrations, Día de los Muertos, (in Mexico this is a poignant remembrance of those you have died) and will be in Potrero on Monday, November 1st preparing for our first Baja tour of the season.
