travel vision

  • acapulco, now when i say the word it brings a whole new world to mind. i had a wonderful experience on many different levels. like this picture looking out from the typical vw bug taxi, i can see things a little differently and i am grateful that being in another culture does affect my vision. when i travel i try to keep a small journal and a part of the plan is to keep a list at the end of each day with the memories that moved me(just a few or i'd never stop writing).
    saturday: *saw a heron (twice) on the ropes of an anchored boat...in the dark. *watched the cliff divers compete in their death defying sport until we tired and had fernando take our boat to sea.
    sunday: * saw hundreds of dolphins as our boat chased and played with large groups taking their young to eat *ate the most delicious mahi -mahi ever with a huge bowl of guacamole *bathed in the sun, swam in the ocean of warm salt water at a former presidents beach * saw a movie sitting in lounge chairs at the cinema. monday: * homemade tamales * walked to local markets * skinny dipping and laughter *watched twinkling white- gold and blue lights on the mountain across the bay. tuesday: * full day adventure to the silver capital of taxco * seeing the mexican country side *finding martha vargas jewelry * zoupas for dinner wed: *3rd trip to president lopez beach - and ate our fav tuna sandwich lunch(prepared by fernando and roberto)* sanbornes department store and exploring the other side of town thurs:* deep sea fishing on the first overcast day ** walking down flooded streets while shopping the markets * taking a late night bus to a silver shop on the last night * saw fireworks across the bay signaling the grand finale. friday: * parting is such sweet sorrow * airport purchases * lost immigration card process * transitioning back into the reality of home. I feel blessed, i filled my senses with new sights and took in the love that my "sisters" so freely give. adios mexico.

Thank you for the sweet peek at your wonderful vacation! A funny note: I went to Mexico once and darned if i didn't lose some immigration card thingie too, causing a little upheaval right as we were packing up. In the end, the airport officials just waved me through without checking my papers. I had gone to great length and expense to hastily obtain an offical substitute for the lost document and felt like insisiting that they at least look at it, but then thought better of it.

heading into the kitchen to prepare for thanksgiving is easier this day because of last weeks journey...i am still energized by the gifts i received from "travel magic". what a difference a week makes-last wednesday splashing on a sunny beach- today peeling potatoes and cooking/cleaning all day. even away from my reality i missed reading my favorite blogs -catching up is wonderful. thanks for being here/there /where ever. karen,i'm taken aback! i've waited for this day. next, your own blog.and memories of roberto are another story.......
