Until next time Mexico!


I have seen and played in water so bright blue and clear it makes you uncomfortable.

I have taken photos at one of the most beautiful weddings ever.

I have tried some seriously hot peppers.

I have remembered very little Spanish.

I have tried my hand at sailing.

I have lived in good hostels and bad ones.

I have made new friends.

I have danced.

I have spent nearly everyday on a bike.

I have scraped my knees and toes on coral.

I have made more life plans and lists.

I have had my fair share of fresh coconuts.

I have practiced asanas down by the water.

I have bought a dress that I’ve been looking for for ten years.

I have learned some uncomfortable truths about myself.

I have slacklined and done backflips and handstands on a beach.

I have been so sunfried that my face is peeling and all clothes are uncomfortable.

I have smiled so much my face will hurt for weeks.

I have thoroughly lost track of time and been bothered by very little.

But. . . For now, its time to go home.

Tomorrow morning (*early) I’ll be on a flight back to NC.

Mexico, you’ve been awesome.

See you around.

The color of water


The water here really is this color.

I don’t understand it.

But, I’m certainly not complaining!

Today, I hitched a ride to a lagoon a few hours away and it’s so lovely, I’m staying the night.
