On to the Deadly Vizcaino Plain

We are going to have one of those periodic pauses in postings on the California Stem Cell Report. This time because of air and land – as opposed to sea – travel. On Thursday Aug. 17, we will wing our way from Guaymas on the Mexican mainland to Loreto in Baja California in one of Aero Guerrero's finest tiny planes. (Guaymas is, by the way, where Charlie Chaplin married his first child bride. En route to the US by train from Mexico City with the prospective mother-in-law also in tow, he decided to do the honorable thing. They honeymooned in the port city for several days.)

From Loreto, we will leap into a 1986 VW Vanagon and forge north into the deadly heat of the Vizcaino Plain, average annual rainfall less than two inches a year. With luck, we will arrive in the Old Country (the U.S.) in a few days and resume postings as we re-enter the dirt life(life on land) for a short while.
