On a dark desert highway
Cool wind in my hair
The smell of colitas rising up through the air
My head grew heavy we had to stop for the night!
We had been driving for hours through the Mexican desert that day. At one point we had been pulled over by the Mexican police for no apparent reason and It cost a hundred US to be let go.
We all were so thirsty. We came into a little town called Todo Santos a small oasis in the middle of a dusty road town. We were met by the local dog.
As we made our way around the town looking for a place to stay we came upon The Hotel California.
No It can’t be… Could it? Hotel California! We had to stop and yes it was exactly as your imagination takes you as you read on. A beautiful Mexican bar after you travel what seems to be back in time through an older but well kept hotel, a single guy in the corner of the restaurant with an acoustic guitar singing a slow broken English version of hotel California. At this point we all had a big smile, we have arrived.
I had a salad for dinner. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. It was the best I had ever had. We really had one of the best times of our lives in this little dusty oasis I was told this is where the song came from and if so I can appreciate it so much more after spending a couple weekends there… Yes it was so cool we rented a car and drove back there *we’ll just go one more time* we said!
The Hotel California is a real hotel located in Baja California on the coastal highway between Cabo San Lucas. In other words, the song was about a real place is what I came find out. I can understand never leaving we met many who had gone to this little town and never left. It was a beautiful little oasis town, palm trees and nice beaches.
So this song has a whole new meaning to us, I have always like the song but I feel as though we were in a place that well related the song and to where we were.
