One Year of Firsts: Massage in Mexico

Day 68

Lu Ann Cahn

oh, oh, mexico. sounds so sweet I've just got to go...James Taylor song

I've been a lot of places, but strangely I've never been to Mexico. But here I am, near Cancun and  not a Spring Breaker in sight.  I actually had a massage in this hut thing on the water today. Lovely.

You see how quiet it is??? It's that quiet allll day here.  That's somewhat of a problem for me.  Oh you have no sympathy for someone who looks like they've just landed in  a 78 degree paradise??? Fair enough.

It's just that I have about one speed. It's GO.  Relax mode is a little tough.  Sitting, looking, resting?  eh...not good at that.

I'm working on it.  One cannot justly complain about anything where I'm at.  The breeze is balmy, the sand is pristine, (the music they play here is a little weird...something like american elevator music from the seventies.  Sorry, not complaining, just explaining.)

Standby. I've scheduled something a little more interesting for tomorrow.
