A stretch of Interstate 80 between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe, Calif., has been identified as the worst section of the nation’s 46,000-mile superhighway system.
“The Interstate is an antique like this car is an antique,” Dan McNichol pointed out as he navigated his 1951 Hudson Pacemaker Coup over Donners Pass. “I chose this section of highway because it’s the worst in the country. This has shaken my car. This challenges the car in every way. It pains me every time I hear this 55-year-old car bounce, shake and rattle.”

Los Cabos is a world known destination because it’s beauty, it’s beaches, lot’s of activities and the status party, Los Cabos has it all.
Los Cabos is a region of Baja with 2 main cities, San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas (to which everyone refers as Cabo), and this two cities are like sun and moon.
San Jose del Cabo is a little town, very quiet and relaxed, you can do some great shopping here, take a walk, a sweet horse back riding tour near the beach, have fun with the always warm locals and just get relaxed.
In the other hand Cabo San Lucas is always a party, there is party everywhere if you go to the beach every single restaurant there has music and contest and lots of tequila, there are many restaurant / bars opened during the day and at night it’s all about fun! with many options like the Sammy Haggar’s Cabo Wabo well known for been the best rock club in Cabo (and in Baja if you want my opinion), or the world’s famous squid roe and so many others.
Also in Cabo San Lucas you can see the arch of Cabo at Land’s end, a wonder which will make you fall in love with Cabo, you can also visit the lover’s beach, the best beach in Cabo where many celebrities do photo sessions.
Los Cabos is a paradise and in the near future I will write a little bit more about it mean while if you have some time make sure you visit Los Cabos because the best things in life can only be seen where the desert meets the sea, at land’s end

This highest, driest, and coldest continent was referred to in the 17th century as Terra Australis Incognita—unknown southern land. Although the continent is still largely a mystery, what is known is that Antarctica’s delicate ecosystem is in danger.
Scientists are studying environmental changes that have resulted in a vast decline in numbers of krill—tiny, shrimplike creatures that are the backbone of the food chain in the surrounding seas. As Antarctica becomes less isolated, the challenge will be to protect these ecosystems and the seals, penguins, and whales that rely on them
