The First Open Reading - of the season will be the 21st of November at 4PM in The Galleria de Todos Santos. Everyone is invited to read an original work under five minutes long.

Directions For Driving South From TJ - Here is an excerpt from my book, "Driving Baja":

"When you leave the border area, position yourself in the second lane from the right. As soon as the extreme right-hand lane exits, you will automatically find yourself in the right-hand lane. Stay there as you cross a flood channel and almost immediately traffic will enter from the right. At this point you need to merge quickly into this new right-hand lane as your exit will open up very fast . The exit signs will point to "Ensenada" and "Ensenada Cuota" (Toll Highway) and the road curves right and drops you into another merge with "Calle Internacional" where you will enter the fast lane"
