I’m back from my annual pilgrimage to Mexico. The past two years, we have been going to Playa Del Carmen but this year we tried Cancun. Cancun wasn’t my cup of tea. It has a busy city/party place feel and I’m past that stage in life. But, I can’t say I had a bad time because I really didn’t.
I tried sitting up front on the “hood” of the catamaran but it was so wavy I was sure I was going to slide right off my perch into the ocean. There was a sweet little Chilean Grandmother in the same “boat” as myself and we clung to each other for dear life. Once we moved to the back and sat in proper seats all was well. But, I made a friend for life. At the end we babbled to each other in our native tongues and she gave me a big hug and kiss on the cheek. That made me feel really good. I think of her as my adopted abuela (grandma).
