Guerrero Negro to Mulegé (via San Ignacio)

We left GN after some further strange challenges: it was raining in the evening and the stairs and the door handle had some voltage via the water. It worked like an electric sheperd and was not leathal but painful. I rather disconnected electricity for the night to avoid any unexpected problems. Unfortunately Echo had his painful experience on top of his earlier defeat. When he was going out of the trailer he was also electroshocked on the metal stairs so he jumped out and avoids the stairs ever since. Now we have to retrain him that the stairs are not enemies.

We have visited a nice little town enroute to Mulegé. In San Ignacio there was a pretty little square with restaurants and a catholic church.
The site for the future mission was discovered in 1706 by Francisco María Piccolo at the oasis of Kadakaamán ("arroyo of the reeds"). The site was a busy agricultural center and served as the base for later Jesuit expansion in Baja. Jesuit missionary Juan Bautista de Luyando founded the mission in 1728 and the church was constructed by the Dominican missionary Juan Gómez in 1786. The mission was finally abandoned in 1840.


We had a good taco for lunch and finished our daytrip to Mulegé at the Villa Maria Isabel RV Park & Campsites. The place had dogs, parrots and large grasshoppers. We walked in the dark to the river where snall fish jumped all over the water. Our daughter grabbed one by hand and it was released afterwards. Sally, our trailer looked quite small between the larger rigs on our sides.
