We made it to Mexico. We had uneventful flights and an uneventful bus ride. Apparently they don’t all speak english but the ones that do want to sell us something. We’ve been offered haircuts and a free breakfast with timeshare presentation. We did not partake in either. Best things so far are the room temp storable eggs and our fish taco lunch.… Read the rest

Dome House beach

Jill is outside on her computer. I’m inside on my computer. Today is Tuesday, that means we walk down the street to get the weekly Eagle. Its a highlight. Seven days until we leave for Cancun. Technically eight but its a very early flight. Yesterday we got our last immunization shot. Now we are just packing and tying loose ends. Yesterday we agreed to volunteer at a chocolatier outside Antigua, Guatemala next month.… Read the rest
