While you're on the road

Sometimes a long and stressful road can become an amazing journey to find joy.

The road can become unpredictable at any moment. I've been living here for a while, so I usually take some road trips to meet people, shop for groceries in Cabo, or discover other places in Baja, and I’ve tried every time to experience something new.

A while ago I was returning from a trip to L.A and I was a bit stressed because all of the chaos that involves traveling and visiting airports, and all I wanted was to be able to get home, on top of that I was starving. So, finally, I arrived in Los Cabos with a big hole in my stomach and Carlos, my driver, received me with great enthusiasm and I had nothing else but to fake a smile. After a few miles on the road, he noticed my mood and started to make some conversation to try to clear my head.

In fact, It ended up being a really good chat so I asked him if there was anything in particular he likes to do to make him feel better when he’s down, he just said "playing some good music" so I asked him to put on some of that good music for me.

He told me he was a big fan of Latin music, the vibe, the sounds, and how all of it mixed with his surroundings it could turn in a bad day into a really good one.

It was a long road but the music was so good that I actually started to feel much better, so I let myself and Carlos enjoyed the desert road on one side, and the endless sea on the other while listening to this amazing Latin sounds. I'll let you enjoy it and I hope you like it as much as I did...
