Free climbing in Cabo San Lucas

Hey-hey everyone! Thank you for your comments!


Now I have a much better set of pics to share about my Mexican saga: http://public.fotki.com/dorosevich/

Mexico has beaten my expectations about it big time! I’ll share more in my personal diary on www.dorosevich.com in a couple of days. And one of the most amazing things about Mexico is that it is really possible to travel all across the country, enjoy the natural and cultural treasures, eat delicious local food and spend $40/day all inclusive! So far, I’m beating my most optimistic budget plans burning less than $15,000/year (annualized $40/day is less than that). Let’s see what happens when I get to the Guatemalas and Nicaraguas of the Latin world!


Leaving San Diego on 26th of April Julia and I got to the resort Cabo San Lucas and spend like 10 days in that area.

Creel - the heart of Barranca del Cobre
Nothing spectacular, just great ocean, beautiful sunsets and (finally!) a major slowdown after years of my mind and body going non-stop.

Then - Copper Canyon, where I got another chance of canyoneering (after my Grand Canyon trip) and lost myself not for a couple of hours but for a couple of days this time. Thank God and my dear Russians in Chicago who equipped me with a GPS for this trip. Without it I would have some major problems with my physical and mental health.


Now we are in the reportedly most beautiful colonial city in the whole Latin America - Zacatecas. It’s a crown jewel of Latin world for sure. Instead of stopping here for a day, as we initially planned, Julia and I prolong our stay here for 5 more days!

Next thing is Real de Catorce and peyote experience next week, then more of colonial jewels (Guanajuato) before getting to Mexico city in mid-June. Pueblo and Oaxaca in late June - early July. And Mayan ruins in mid July before proceding to Guatemala in late July. What happens next - hard to tell. I see that I spend 30%-50% more time in places that I like. So, planning just one month ahead is a fare thing to do…
