Ow, my eye…

So I’ve been working in the basement with my compressed air nailgun and for some reason, I forgot to wear my safety glasses the other day.  Of course, that’s the day I get some blowback into my eyes.  It didn’t seem so bad but there was definitely something in there because every now and again […]

Want to take off that pesky holiday weight? Try new and improved “Montezuma’s Revenge”, by Mexco.

Sorry it took so long to write about the last day but it seems I smuggled some illegal immigrants into the country with me.  More on that later. We were originally supposed to fly out at around 3pm which would have had us leaving the hotel at noon which was pretty perfect really.  Unfortunately, the […]

Island tour

After last nights thunderstorm, the day was windy and cool so we decided to take a taxi around the island.  We had heard that the east coast was quite beautiful and it wasn’t a good day for swimming so a guided tour seemed like the perfect thing. We stopped at one of the nice beach […]

That hole that they’re playing out of is called a ceynote or […]

Tulum and Iguanas

Hmm…25-35 cm of snow with possible freezing rain in Ottawa for the next 24 hours.  That doesn’t sound very good.  We took a tour of Tulum which is an ancient Mayan city on the coast of the Yucatan. Not the most impressive ruins but still pretty and in a very nice location.  Of course, Sharon […]

Cozumel Day 1

Not wanting to rub peoples nose in it too much, especially seeing as how the winter has been particularly bad this year back in Canada but I’m writing this from this resort: That’s right.  Cozumel Palace in Mexico.  That’s the view from the glass bottom boat tour we went on this afternoon.  It was a […]
