Successfully navigated to the Holiday Inn with Victor, a Bolivian psychedelic rocker from Chicago (his words, not mine), only to find that the hotel was in a factory district. The top local walking recommendation was Home Depot, this came from the man working the food counter downstairs. Looking out my window I also saw no better options besides the Home Depot. Entonces, no beach for me.
You can see Victor’s band here.
I’m off to the airport to give this another go.
