- 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.
