Todos Santos, Mexico
Andrew and I are in Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, Mexico. I'm not the sun worshipper I once was, except in the yogic sense. But I still appreciate that Todos Santos is everything you could hope for in a beach getaway -- piles of mangos, fragrant and sticky sweet, gold-speckled beaches, and tacos stuffed with buttery fish and shrimp. There's a special bonus in our version of paradise: Mario, from Mexico city but a longtime resident of Todos Santos, can serve you piles of just caught yellow tail for your sashimi dinner and then teach you how to surf before lunch the next day. Any teacher who can coax me to standing on a surfboard in less than 20 minutes has a special gift (photographic evidence to follow). The goddess of small things is busy here in Baja!
