Mexico - Day 2

Hola, everyone. Look at what I am currently seeing. Well.... WOW. Let me tell you what things have been like the last few days, then I'll explain myself. slksdfalkjsdjfklakljsdfa!!!!!!!! That's what its felt like. So many things are so very different from the way they were just 96 hours ago. For starters, 96 hours ago I was a single man. I was my own financial entity. If I were in a coma, the doctors would ask my parents if they wanted to pull the plug. Now I am married to Kristin Hawley, erm, Kristin GOOD. If she's hurt, I'm in charge. We are a financial unit. It was just 72 hours ago that I was dancing and still taking care of various wedding-related details. 48 hours ago, I was shopping for some very last-minute items for my next adventure. Less than 90 minutes of sleep later, the next day begins in a nondescript hotel in Oak Brook, Illinois, US and ends in a resort 2 hours south of Cancun in Mexico. Today, here I am, on a beach on the Caribbean, after a GREAT day, looking out at the (currently) dark green ocean, sitting next to my new wife, writing to you. This is what I bought a PDA for. We're staying at a cute little resort called "Maya Tankah by Freedom Paradise." It's not a particularly exquisite affair, that's why I said cute. But its way more our speed than the ultra-touristy more upscale places. This place is by NO MEANS a shack - don't misunderstand me. The rooms are cute, the AC works well, we have a gorgeous ocean view (see below), and all the food and alcohol you can shove into your body. I am currently coming off a wonderful buzz induced from almost 32 ounces of a potent Blue Lagoon. The pop music here is SO much better than US pop. I mean the beach bar here plays music all day long - and it must be just Mexi-pop, but its all pretty good. Nothing particularly terrible. I heard at least three songs today that I though were actually pretty good. More than I can say for US radio, anyway. Maybe its better when you can't understand all the innane things they are saying. Its getting dark. I kinda hafta use the bathroom. And dinner's up. I'll be blogging more when I get the chance. Peace!! 7:41 8-9-06 Posted by pedalboy at August 17, 2006 1:23 AM
