Postcards from Cozumel #2

It is very hot and steamy here. My lens fogged up on the way to lunch, 
which we ate at this hole-in-the-wall restaurant which didn't have any walls. The food was muy muy bien.


I don't speak Spanish, nor does Ethel, so we guess alot about what the signs say.



The grocery store has an escalator. I told my brother-in-law to let the cart go. 
The cart rolled down really fast and crashed into me and limes were flying everywhere
and I missed the shot. 



You know me well enough by now to know that I'm kidding, I hope.




We swam in the pool all afternoon, and my sister and I went snorkeling in our front yard.
Pretty stinkin' cool. Sort of like swimming in an aquarium. 



Then we drank margaritas on the balcony.



Then we went to dinner and ate more muy muy bien food.
This is Ethel fanning herself with a chip. Have I mentioned how hot and steamy it is here?

  1. According to google.translate.com it says "Please Enter" "No Pets". I like the guessing part more.

  2. Literally translated "please enter no pets". But yours are funnier.

  6. Looking muy bien, Linda. Favor entrar (please come in) sin (without) mascotas (pets). Good thing you didn't bring a burro with you!

  7. There's a tropical storm on the other side of you, out in the eastern Pacific. Here in our desert, I awoke to clouds and steamy humidity...ugh...makes my hair frizz. The sign says basically, "No pets allowed", but you already figured that out. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

  8. I love the front yard swimming hole. Wow! If I ever get a good vacation, this is what I will insist on!

    Cheers,

    With the heat and steaminess, I would spend my time in the pool trying to stay cool. All my meals would have to be delivered. Have a wonderful time.

  10. Ahhhhhh - but I grew up in Florida and I don't want hot, steamy weather anymore! But - on the water? That's OK! Besides, I'm moving to Savannah later this year - voluntarily going to hot and steamy! Have fun, don't worry about your "kids", and STAY OUT OF TROUBLE!

  11. sin means without. I like the translation mascotas for your companion pets ! steamy means you are allowed to sweat out all your calories. How lucky your are! Nice miniature fan! maybe with a large Mexican hat, the fan will be more efficient!

  12. It's hot and steamy here at my place so I think I'll go down to the bay. Trouble is they don't allow those wonderful refreshing drinks by the water. We have a long way to go re relaxing. I love Mexico for that!
    You are having a wonderful holiday. Wish I was there!

    Best always,

  14. I looove snorkeling! No underwater photos? I also love the size of those margaritas.

  15. What you need in that fifth picture is to have your feet in the lap of a handsome dude who massages your feet. That with the margarita would make you not notice the heat.

  16. Awesome on all accounts!! Looks amazing... But Mexico in July? Yea.... It is hot and steamy.... But that awesome pool and sea water and margaritas should keep your mind off that :-)

  17. We always experienced the BEST food in Mexico eating where the locals eat. Camarrones de majo de ajo (not sure of spelling) shrimp in lots of garlic, is something to try. Sop up the sauce with crusty bread. Going to the bakery for sugary donuts is fun too (Panderia is the bakery). Do they have lobster tacos?? I remember staying on Isla Mujeres in 1970 (before Cancun existed-really, it was a fishing village) and staying in a hammock camp for 50 cents a night.
    Have a wonderful time. Bottoms up. Salud.

  19. Ethel looks like a senora who's about to break out in a fandango. It looks like fun.
