Tuesday Traipsing

Today we were planning on having another slow day so had breakfast at our hotel by the pool where I got to finally try "divorced eggs" which consists of two fried eggs on corn tortillas, one covered in red sauce and one with green with beans in between. But...for one thing they forgot my beans and the sauces tasted not so homemade. It wasn't even really pretty enough for a photo. Bah! We walked downtown to an open market Dag had read about and it was so nice to be able to look around without being yelled at (SENOR! ALMOST FREE!). Prices were marked on stuff and English was rare. I bought some of those Loteria cards and two spoons for our room in case we need to eat any leftovers later. We've been making do with some pretty uncivilized methods. We had some disappointing ceviche right down the street from the restaurant where we KNOW they have perfect ceviche. We just wanted to make sure to try different things. Sometimes though, if you know exactly what you want, it's best to just go get that. The weather in the morning was windy and chilly and threatening to rain. But it turned out to be one of the hottest days since we arrived. This called for more snorkeling so back to Dzul-Ha we went!

Today I saw a family of five squid and a water snake and Dag saw an octopus. It was awesome. Not really much of a slow day but definitely a good day. Now we're off to have dinner at the one place we KNOW will have heavenly food. Los Portales del Caribe!

Saw lots of pretty colors today.

Update: PdC was CLOSED! We forgot that from last year. Tuesday is their dark day for whatever reason so we went to El Foco instead, which is nothing to sneeze at.

Oh! The colors are so beautiful and the food sounds so good it is making me hungry even though I ate only an hour ago.

It sounds like you're having a really good time! YAAAAAY!
