Buenos dias...

Even though I had a scheduled post for today... just wanted to check in and say buenos dias to you guys...

Asides from some minor setbacks earlier, I'm happy to report that we are doing much better now...For the moment it's just me and Robert in the room, waiting for a house call from the doc, it would appear that Robert had a reaction to a fly bite, his arm is a bit swollen, but he'll be fine, nothing a little Cortisone and Zyrtec can't fix.

Arman, with no surprise to any of us... has once again gathered a social club of a few teens (7 boys and a couple of girls..."hoties") and is the organizer of their activities... my little social butterfly... so needless to say he is having a blast, we hardly see him during the day, just at meal times, and that's fine, as long as he's having fun.

Now on to yours truly.... well.... not realizing how white I am... and how long the sun hasn't seen some parts of my body.... with all the sunscreen, I still got sunburned in a few spots, but it's not too bad. You tend to lose track of time when you are swimming in that turquoise Caribbean water, with tropical fish just all around you... the boys and I were out there for hours snorkeling, Rob trying to catch fish with his own bare hands... a must see experience :)
I'm also happy to report that as lame as I though the pool aerobics looked... I actually had a good time and made the boys laugh a lot, when I jumped in and joined a semi drunk group of seniors as they attempted to copy the instructor's moves... that was the most fun I had in a long time...

Anyways... we're really enjoying every moment of our adventure so far.... even the down parts.... we've bonded and opened up to each other, and that's the whole idea behind this trip.

We're off to Chichen Itza tomorrow, which should be a great experience, then we have Tulum on Thursday and a Mayan Adventure tour on Friday which includes stops at a great snorkeling lagoon, an under ground cavern, and a 12foot dive into a sink hole (mayan cenotes).

Looking forward to all the adventures we have planned, I most likely will not report back here, but still have a couple of posts scheduled for you all, thanks for sticking around and checking on us :)


  1. Hola y buenos tardes, mi amiga! I have enjoyed the trip you're on, and you are in for a treat! We especially love Xel Ha, where I spent an afternoon in the infirmary while everyone else got to dive! I too did not realize how pale my skin was or how hot the Mexican sun can be on a gringa! Have a ball and be safe. xo kitty
