When I post on Facebook it marks my location as Quintana Roo...I love the way the words slide off my tongue. I find myself speaking the most unusual Spanglish when I am here. Because I know about 50 words of Spanish, mostly tourist talk. I want to learn more. But it doesn't always work out like I want it to.
The other day we were ordering our lunch and our waiter spoke that wonderful melodic English that Spanish speakers use. I was listening in my Spanglish when he suddenly asked in the clearest, unaccented English, "Do you want soup?" I looked at him like he had three heads. I could not recognize my own language spoken perfectly because I listening in Spanglish! It made me laugh when I realized what had happened.
|After playing a par 3 golf
We played golf yesterday. It was hot and extremely humid. It felt like I was trying to breath under water. I started the 3 par course looking like a respectable lady of a certain age...my arms partially covered because I do not get my arms out even in the summer anymore. As the round ended, I was not looking as cool and collected as I would have liked. My husband on the other hand said he was not hot at all! What is wrong with me...or him?
The little golf course was absolutely beautiful from start to finish. Huge expanses of sand with smaller landing spots made it a challenge but we had a lot of fun. If you are a man, you will find it especially challenging because the distances are all wrong for you. But if you are a woman, you are in heaven!
Playa del Carmen...tourist pleasures!
Note: Did you know the Maya comprise the single
largest group of indigenous people
on the North American Continent? (Fodors)

It is raining today...solid clouds from horizon to horizon. The temperature lingers in the mid seventies and it feels heavenly. If you are on vacation, you always need a down day. Read Eat! Write! Think! Relax!
Life is good.
