If I had to sum up my day trip to Todos Santos, I would describe it as a microcosm of the Los Cabos region. It has many faces – the farmers, the ex-pats, the artists, the musicians, and even the tourists. I will add a few additional descriptive words – quirky, laid-back, and friendly.
As I paid for my faded tin skull-boy (for my son) and a shiny tin butterfly (for my daughter), Kersten handed me my purchase and his homemade business card in a home-made bag, complete with string handle. In a year, like paint on tin, my memory will fade, and I will forget what I bought. But I won’t forget the shop or Kersten. They formed a part of my Todos Santos experience, and experiences, I find, stick around longer than things.
