lodginglodging reservations in Calexico

Calexico California is an agricultural town right on the Mexican border. On the other side sits the much larger city of Mexicali. Numerous earthquakes, on the deserts edge of the Sea of Cortez.

DanaMite with brother and his new dog, plus Escaper Paul - all outside of Mount Signal Mexican Cafe. Notice my 'totaled' Isuzu Amigo that I am testing out, after I salvaged it. Had to take it for a spin to make sure it was worth rebuilding.
