Isla Mujeres Spring Break 2011 – Part IV
I was happy to see that Nutter 2 was still happy, fat and sassy…
As was this little guy who is located across the street from Manana. I really don’t know if it’s a male or female, but “it” is really sweet and humble. Last time I saw it in December, it was wearing a little sweater. No sweater this time, but still as sweet.
Okay, so on to the rest of the post. I actually did a crazy thing and rented a golf cart to visit the south end of the island…WITHOUT MAKING SURE THAT I HAD GOLF CART INSURANCE FIRST!! OMG, call me one crazy woman. Well, to tell you the truth, most of my friends actually think I am a crazy woman because I go to Mexico by myself, but you know what? I aint’ gonna stop doing it in the near future because I’d rather be crazy than never experience the adventures I’ve had.
This is the church close to La Bruja. It’s been a couple years since I’ve been in the area, so I haven’t seen this before. Beautiful!! Sure it doesn’t have the history, but I thought it was just a really sweet, pretty church.
When I was there in May of 2008, the president of Mexico was scheduled for a visit on Isla, so there were many soldiers all over the island. Even then, I didn’t see them walk down Hidalgo, although I did see Federales around town and soldiers posted here and there.
In fact, I was talking to him and his wife and then he suddenly got up and went into the Suites los Arcos hotel. Next thing we know, he appeared on the balcony of one of the rooms. His wife said, “What are you doing up there??” I said, “What are you doing in my room???” (Which it wasn’t but I was giving him a hard time.) Haha…those crazy Canucks. I guess it comes from all that cold and the snow…haha!
While I was sitting there, I noticed this little guy walking around who obviously belonged to one of the shop owners. By the way, I’m not a Croc lover, but I love the coordinating camouflage look between the Crocs and the shorts here…
He occasionally messed with the trinkets on the neighboring vendor’s table. This little girl meticulously replaced everything he got out of order. These children live in a different world than American children. Our children could definitely learn a lesson from them.
And here’s my favorite photo from this trip Yes, it’s been Photoshopped without the statues. But this is the way that I think Punta Sur should look…au natural…
