Cancun #2

Back in Cancun. It actually has the best beach of any place we have been yet, guess we could have just stayed here the whole time. Yesterday we were out body surfing all day. The waves were the perfect size and my shorts almost washed to shore without me a few times. It was the only day I failed to put on sun screen. I guess I wasn't tan enough to block the rays, as I have been feeling the pain of the big burn very much. Luckily it is my first real burn of the trip. Weird cause we are going home so soon. But it works for me because it is raining hard outsite and it's nice to take it easy and do some school work. Today I think I had the best meal of the vacation, empanadas cooked to a perfection. None better. Two nights ago we went out to the movies and saw the new Robin Hood film. It isn't worth writing home about.

Last Island Day!

So we rented some mopeds today and shredded the streets for the whole of one hour. Supper fun after a few mellow days. The day before we walked for like 6 of 7 miles to the otherside of the island which was rather hard in the heat but still amzing. The coastline is very pretty with big waves thrashing against the rocks. I have been running everyday for a while and I´m getting more and more into it. I want to start training for a big run when I get back. It makes you feel so good afterwards. Yesterdat I got an email back from the editor of The Weekily Valcano in Tacoma, a magazine about arts and culture. I´m sending him some samples of my writing and some ideas about articles and it sounds like it might be a possablity for some job status. It is not a sure thing so I will not get my hopes up. I´m still pumping out a lot of art in pen and ink form, working up for the june show. So glad there is only 5 more days here. Cheers!

Sick Day

Well, we finally got sick with only a week left to go! Spent most of the day in bed but we are both feeling a lot better already. It was probably just a slight reation to food. We have been supper fortunate to have such good health otherwise. it would be the pitts to be down and out in such hot weather for a long period of time. Today I have been grazing for jobs on the worldwide web. I applied for some. I really want to get on making a personal web page-resume, i think that would help me land something a bit better as it is the thing to do these days. i´ve been plotting out the design and am excited to get cracking on once I get back and am around a scanner. well, hopefully tomarrow we´ll get out and about so the blog posts won´t be so darn boring!

This town has been super low key, working on art and running and anticipating the return home ( a week!). It has the colonial aesthetic and there are some pretty neat cathedrels. Our hotel has a pool but it looks pretty scummy. Lastnight the owner and his group of friends were out in the courtyard making noises 'till all hours of the morning, I managed to sleep still though which I am super thankful for. Hey, does anyone remember Kyle Bain? Good highschool buddy? of course you do! well you should all check out his music if you get a chance. i stumbled upon it this morning and it is super beautiful. just click this link.

do it, seriously!

we are moving on from here today to the Isle de Mujeres. Not to far from here. We hear there are some waves there that are boogie boardable. Which would be killer. Logan and I have been playing heaps of Gin Rummy, he's cleaning house but I'm getting better bit by bit. We have a little ongoing tally.

Playa Del Carmen Farwell

Well, its been an experience. Straight off the show MTV spring break. I pretty much sat back and watched my culture. Well I guess it´s not really my culture because im not really involved in it and I don´t really know anyone that is. It´s been inspiring in a deppressing sort of way. Seeing other lifestyles can make you super happy with the one you have. I feel so motivated to try harder then ever at what I know is important in this world. Orange fake tans, empty beer cans, and dancing don´t last. It´s nice to be part of other things that actually do.

People Watching

Well the town we are in, Playa de Carmen, is supèr tourisy. It doesnt feel like I am even in Mexico. but it is a welcomed variation as it gives one much to think about. People watching is very intersting, especially other people on vacation. I dont know what it is but it is very fascinating. Lastnight we sat on a balcony and gazed for hours at the passers by bellow. The beach here is once again a beauty and I have had the pleasure of a few swims already. We probably wont stay here for to much longer as it is more like the US then Washington state. Well, less then 2 weeks tell I get to come home and hopefully see all of you!

The days go on

This morning I rode my bike to the beach and went for an early morning run for about a mile and a half. Everyone one knows what song was playing in my head the whole time. It is a great feeling to zip along that one space where the sand and the incoming waves meet. I have been loving my schedual of getting in bed by about 10 pm and getting up early to start off my day with plenty of time to work on various projects and plot out some future plans and ambitions.

This morning we once again had the hostels egg and tortilla breakfast. The hot weather has really stunted my appitite, but Im a sucker for any food you can put hot sauce on, especially for breakfast.

Lastnight this guy that (kind of but not really) works at the hostel made some pretty good and fatty BBQ. It was good, but there was a salad as well and I have been all about veggies when they come cause its kind of rare.
