Back to Cancun

There will be a lot of beach photos to show for my time in Playa del Carmen. That and relaxing memories. Despite hours and hours of walking, when it’s a beach, it’s just by default relaxing! There were unfortunately a lot of rainy days … Read More

Back in the Yucatan!

Gosh, where to start?! I’ve been painfully lax in keeping the blog up-to-date this trip. Partially I guess due to the busted netbook. Thought about using a net cafe this afternoon but the couple I saw were packed so back to ye olde iPhone. … Read More

Mexico City Thus Far

Gosh, time has gotten away from me in making updates on my trip, i.e. none after being here for a couple of nights.  Amazing for me, but time  has been pretty solidly filled so far. I slept on and off on my flight into … Read More

Mérida – Last Day Wrap Up

Not a lot of interesting news today. After last evening´s post, I found a bit nicer restaurant, more of a sports bar type place where they were watching “football” – soccer to the US.   I´d done more of fast food type places, even though … Read More

Life is a Highway

After yesterday´s long dissertation, I meandered out to find sustenance… and it was Burger King.  Sorry to one and all, but it was bound to happen sooner or later.  You knew it, I knew it. And after my quatro grande, I moved on to … Read More

Living and Dying In The Yucatan

So, after yesterday´s long post about such thrilling subjects as worn out sandals and death marches, I meandered over and caught the 4pm bus tour of the city.  The one Lonely Planet recommends turns out to be this wee little bus leaving from Parque … Read More
