I had a wonderful stay in La Paz. I rented a bike for a day so I could get to see a lot of the city. I was on my way to Tel Cel to buy a 3G laptop modem and a guy opened his door on his pickup and I smahed right into it. Threw me to the gound and I got a few cuts and scratches and a big bump on my elbow. Then a short time later I was almost run down by a guy who thought bikes shouldn't be on the road. Even though La Paz is not a bike friendly city, I still like it here. I enjoy the routine of having a nice Pescado filet dinner or Arrachea tacos or eating at Applbees, then strolling down the malecon and getting a nice ice cream cone. I also like the grocery stores here. They have stock that is influenced by the gringos who visit them. So I stocked up my freezer with frozen dinners, bratwurst, and ice cream. I checked the weather well on about 4 different sources and headed out out to the islands after my good-byes. I spent the first night at Caleta Partida and the next morning headed up to Isla San Francisco. About an hour out I turned around and went back to Ensenada Grande(next door to Caleta Partida). It was just too junky and the wind was on the nose. About 3am I awoke to the boat getting these annoying little slaps on the side of the boat because I was sideways to the incoming waves. So I weighed anchor and headed north. What a difference a day makes in weather conditions. It was so nice that I kept on going all the way up to Aqua Verde, bypassing San Evaristo.
