The sea, the pools, the silver jewelry – everything shimmers here

I really hope the Immigration Service does not check the form I dashed off as the plane set down, b/c I had NO idea what to write for “your address while in Mexico.” I knew only that my friend Peggy would be there with her Jeep, as I exited the airport. I thumbed through Lonely Planet, or tried to, but couldn’t get the Nook to get there soon enough, so I ended up with “Tulum” and wrote in the name of the first hotel (a hostel, actually) I saw.

I exited the airport, passed the hawkers of taxis and limousines and time shares…and there she was, with her open-air wonder.

Peggy's Jeep, windows inserted for the evening.

The Beach this morning:
Undoubtedly I am not the first person to have practiced meditation on these white sands, not the first one to have said, “Breathe with the waves…” but I’ll say this: I really was the only person as far as the eye could see across our stretch of the beach.

As far as the eye can see...

The Day: Mercado 28

Listed by Lonely Planet as 95th of 105 Things to Do in Cancun, the place is nevertheless great fun. It is a warren of shops selling textiles, ceramics, and brilliant, heavy silver jewelry. I was alone for about 4.5 minutes, during which time I wandered off and returned with some brilliant, heavy silver jewelry…

The Holy Family also visited Mercado 28

Mercado 28 Barbershop. Peggy - my 5 children know her as Master Barber & Master Barber Teacher, as well as Mom's friend - is saying, "Do you have any idea how many times I've had my picture taken in this place (JUST SMILE)?"

Amazing Crema Gloria VeraCruz. How do you say Sugar High?

Back home.

    Silver jewelries are nice even if they are quite expensive. *
