Yep, Mexico was fabuloso. From introducing my friends to Nacho Libre and hearing them use “chanchito” throughout the weekend, to eating thoughtful, wonderful meals, to swimming in the ocean and screaming in delight at each wave — this was the best Mexico trip yet. We danced, watched movies, played bocce, rummy, Apples to Apples and Catch Phrase, drank mojitos, margaritas, Dr Pepper and Mexican sugar cane Coca Cola. We ate flour, corn and whole wheat tortillas, ate green tomatillo salsa, pico de gallo, bufalo salsa and a shot of hot sauce or two too. We rocked everything from skimpy bikinis to stretchy pants with style only acceptable on the beaches of Puerto Penasco. We swam, dove, laughed until our sides hurt and made fun of each and every one of our insecurities. By this afternoon we were ready to get away from each other and yet, I’m certain we’ll soon be talking about the 09 reservations.
I love Mexico. I love time with my friends. This was just the best trip I’ve taken in a very long time.
My head hurts, my skin is a wee bit pink but mostly just tan, and my heart is happy. This was exactly the trip I needed and I can’t wait to get back to the gym, work, and the American routine in the morning.
Buenas noches amigos,
