Empty prom­ise, Sea of Cortez, Mex­ico

The Guardian - Travel - - Travel | Globespotting -

This pair en­joy­ing the ap­par­ently empty turquoise wa­ters of the Sea of Cortez are in fact wad­ing through one of the world’s rich­est marine en­vi­ron­ments. As well as 900 fish species, in­clud­ing gi­ant man­tas, it is home to whales, whale sharks and, less fa­mously, the geo­duck clam. This strange crea­ture, which grows up to 20cm long and is a lo­cal del­i­cacy, caught the at­te­nion of Hos­sein Amir­sadeghi, au­thor of a 600-page book chron­i­cling his jour­ney through Mex­ico in search of its di­verse cui­sine.
