I just got back from our all expenses paid junket to Cabo San Lucas (Cape St. Luke?) in Baja, Mexico. I looked for non-stop flights, but couldn't find any, so I got the next best thing, two non-stop flights, back to back. We took off in our portable movie theater and headed for the land of double cross beer. The "English only" movement has gotten a lot more traction in Cabo than in New Jersey. We were greeted by the concierge with "I am so proud and welcoming to you our grand hotel you are staying here". I think that's British English. I can tell you this, the only people who speak Spanish in Cabo are old geezers who just don't get it and US tourists on their first day. Quite by mistake, we converted some dollars to pesos before we started off. The ad hoc rate of 10 pesos to 1 dollar that everyone charges is better than what the bank gave us. Besides the prices are often quoted in US dollars. In short, being in Baja, Mexico is just like being in Southern California in America.
