Please Mom! (Chetumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico)

“Please Mom!” Davy pleaded.  “Can we stay here today?”

John and I had gotten up bright and early and had our gear nearly packed and ready to go before we got the kids up.

The first words out of Davy’s mouth were, “Can we stay?”

I suppose we needed a day like today – a day spent doing absolutely blissfully nothing.  The beach here in Chetumal is dismal, the heat oppressive, the market shut down on Sunday… In short, we had nothing to entice us to go out and explore.

So all four of us hung around the hotel all day reading, playing computer games, surfing the internet, and napping.

In short – it was EXACTLY what we needed!

About Nancy Sathre-Vogel

After 21 years as a classroom teacher, Nancy Sathre-Vogel finally woke up and realized that life was too short to spend it all with other people's kids. She and her husband quit their jobs and, together with their twin sons, climbed aboard bicycles to see the world. They enjoyed four years cycling as a family - three of them riding from Alaska to Argentina and one exploring the USA and Mexico. Now they are back in Idaho, putting down roots, enjoying life at home, and living a different type of adventure. It's a fairly sure bet that you'll find her either writing on her computer or creating fantastical pieces with the beads she's collected all over the world.

    interesting… actually the beach is no such thing here, the real thing is 45 min in car away, in Bacalar Lagoon, and even that one is not what is used to be.

    The most enjoyable thing for visitors in Chetumal is actually the boulevard, not for taking a swim, but to walk it, run it, or drive it. And precisely because of the hellish heat is why we apreciate the blissful breeze of the bay.

    Thanks for visiting our City. I think i’ll read a little more of your blog.
