The Palapa of Knowledge

We are in Santa Rosalia at the Marina for a while. We are having some issues with the batteries and are getting replacements from the states. We are enjoying the town and the company of the other cruisers. The marina is very informal and is pretty much run by the cruisers, the beer, ice, laundry etc.. is all done on the honor system. Each boat has a sheet on which to mark down the services you use, and then you settle up before you leave. The building tends to be the afternoon hangout, where everyone sits around and drinks a beer. The opinions and advice apparently prompted someone to christen it “The Palapa of Knowledge”.

I will add more details about Santa Rosalia later. As it is a interesting town.
