8AM - Heading to Mecca.
Did you know that there is a "Mecca" in the State of California? MsTioga wants to go there to take a peek. Mecca, California is at the north end of the Salton Sea.

12 Noon - Mecca, Mexico.
The sign on the building reads "United States Post Office." But is this the United States? From the businesses, the people, the voices that we hear, the Town of Mecca is in the Country of Mexico!

We entered a panaderia [bakery]. The pastry for sale was the same as in Mexico. There were trays for customers to place their pastry and tongs to pick up stuff. Same as in Mexico. All around me, not one word of English. Everybody speaking in Spanish.

Yes, the location may be in California, but Mecca is in Mexico. We on the TiogaRV Team are at home here.

Mexican shops in Mecca.

5PM - Nite Camped in Bombay Beach.
The Town of Bombay Beach appears to consist mostly of mobile home type housing. MsTioga is Nite Camped next to a playground. It is pretty quiet here.
