Greetings, amigos! I am back from the land of the palm trees, green-blue water, and humidity.
This was our view from the deck at Tulum. Beaut-i-ful.
Tulum's claim to fame is having Mayan ruins on the ocean. The history geek in me loves this.
The first night Anthony and I were in Mexico, we cabbed into Tulum and got some Mexican food. The food was delicious, but downtown was pretty sketchy with lots of police patrolling with lights on and automatic weapons. Do not fear, we were able to consume tortillas safely. Delicious delicious tortillas. Totally worth it.
After Tulum, we were excited to get into an air conditioned hotel (So Cal has left me with no heat tolerance) and rode the 2 hours back to Cancun.
We went Jet Skiing and Snorkeling. This was the coolest part of the vacation, but I have no pictures. Yeah, I am an awesome blogger, I know. I've never been snorkeling before though and seeing all the gorgeous fish swimming in the ocean was amazing! I kept trying to dive to the bottom to catch them, but sadly the fish were faster than me and did not want to play :).
And then...the wedding....
As was the view from the reception:
And another modelesque couple....
Due to a surprise wind gust, I ended up catching the garter during the reception. Yeah..not the bouquet, the garter.
Apparently, I am a single man ready for marriage!
I did manage to run a bit while in Mexico. My most notable run was when I ran down the Cancun strip about an hour before the wedding. I was cutting it close already, got lost, and ended up sprinting the last two miles down the strip. It was sweat-tastic for sure. Humidity, you schooled me.
And here I am, back in So Cal, mosquito bitten, (semi-)tanned, and relaxed. Vacation, you were wonderful, but I'd like to spend more time with you. Don't be a stranger, ya hear?
Way down here...you need a reason to move...
