I'm currently sitting in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Airport waiting with my friends Liz and Jack for our flight to Cancun. We'll be meeting up with Jack' sister and brother-in-law (great people!!!) and a friend of theirs. We began talking about this trip back in the Fall and made it official in January when we bought the tickets. This was all before I even applied for the Korea trip; I'm super glad that both were able to be worked out.
I'm sure I'll post news of my adventures, along with pictures, especially when we go to see the Mayan ruins...yes I want to absorb some culture and history along side the sunshine's rays.
Previously may only adventure to Mexico was when I was a child (single digits age) when my family took a Spring Break trip through southern Texas. One afternoon we did cross the border at Brownsville, TX and explored a little bit of Matamoros. While I remember my father haggling with the market venders to get my poncho (still have) and my donkey piñata (fell about years ago), I don't remember much else abut that experience. While I know this visit will be ENTIRELY different, it is nice to be returning to the land of our southern neighbor.
I hope this proves to be another fruitful time of roaming the roads of lands remote!!
