i spent the last 2 weeks in mexico with nico. most of our time was spent in akumal, a small town south of cancun and playa del carmen. it was founded in 1958 as a diving community and still has some of the best diving in the riviera maya. it was the best vacation ever–snorkeling, collecting shells and coral to make necklaces, building drip castles in the sand, and driving through the jungle in a rickety rental car. monteczuma did not seek revenge upon us and we met some wonderful people in merida, capital of the yucatan. we drank coconut water out of coconuts, saw a cat with one eye, drank pineapple juice out of plastic baggies, and visited the oldest cathedral in the western hemisphere! we also visited a few mayan ruins, swam in a brackish lagoon with parrotfish, and saw a shark and sea turtle! how can it get any better than that? now i am back in chicago visiting my family, but i wish so much to go back south of the border…the colors there are blinding…
