Here we are, our second day in Cozumel and what a great trip so far.
Arrived at out hotel, the Coral Princess at 4:30 after being on a plane or in an airport since 4am. Went out for a really nice dinner at a local restaraunt (Joe had chicken-Pollo Mole and I had Tilapia roasted in bannana leaf with onions, peppers and tomato’s, amazingly yummy. Got back to the hotel and relaxed for the rest of the night. Imagine my surprise at waking up at 3:30 am to find that the power was out. You guessed it, no air, no coffee, no breakfast. And I did I forget to mention NO FREEKING COFFEE. But we perservered and made it out alive.
Well, except for yesterday. I guess my poor tired worn out body can’t handle travel like it used to. Spent the whole day in bed alternating between fever and chills, puking and choto, inspnish itg is called vomito. I have noticed that my illness seems to make Joe more patient. He doesn’t get short or snippy at all, which is a wonderful thing.
Anyway, Cozumel is wonderful. Got an early start this morning and went out on a glass bottom boat and snorkling. Out of three snorkle spots I almost made it all the way through the first one before my lung seized and I was out of the water. Is OK though, cause I got to stretch out on deck and put a start to a really rockin’ sunburn. The water is a perfect shade of light aqua (the old moretti for my glassy friends) and the sky is a perfect blue with just enough clouds . 82 degrees today with a sweet breeze off the bay.
After snorkling we walked around the plaza for awhile and had one of my favorite meals. Carnita Taco’s made fresh at an open air stall. So yummy. Must learn to make Carnita meat.
Right now, lounging on the beach, enjoying a Capitan and coke and watching the Iguana’s walk on the wall.
The Iguana’s here are amazing. I swear I saw a 5 footer earlier, and that is before tail. And yes, I have pictures.
Off to drink. Carnival starts tonite at 7:0pm. Daniel has been keeping our table covered with Cornas, Captian & Cokes and the house specail margartis. Not to mention the charcoal grill cooking our dinner poolside. The buzz is on the sunset is laying across the equator and oh yes we are like two birds in the sky flying upside down! Watch out we don’t shit on ourselves.
