Abram The Entertainer

I'm flying to Cancun today to meet LindaRose Richardson. We'll be taking care of friend Lisa Harrison's 3 cats in Playa del Carmen for the next two weeks. The opportunity seemed like a good time for a reunion if the heat of the Yucatan Peninsula doesn't do us in.

We took the ADO bus to Playa del Carmen and walked the pedestrian tourist strip of 5th Avenue. Among all the shops, restaurants, and tour operators we found two places for our first margaritas: Pez Vela swing bar (oldest surviving restaurant on 5th Avenue for over 28 years) and Carboncito's with a most entertaining waiter named Abram.
