Feb 15, 2009 - Mother hen is happy
The kids made it last night by plane. Chris is still bubbling over while I am nursing tequila brain. What happened to the years of drinking a bottle of alcohol and springing out of bed the next morning. Last night, we celebrated their arrival and I think I had two drinks and I'm sure they were watered down. Ah that's it, Mexican water, that's why my head and tummy feel so good (pun intended here) this morning. Can't wait till kids wake up so I can go over there and "talk at them" for a couple of hours or so. The kids love this, according to...Jump to full entry
Feb 13, 2009 - Sayulita, this morning...........
I fell in love with this place last year when I visited it for the first time with a friend of mine. It is full of authentic Mexican culture, including having an "el centro", which even the smallest communities have. Essentially, it includes a square (think Tiannemen but 1000 times smaller) which has flowers, palm trees, walkways, and loads of school kids (well behaved even!) talking and playing (you read that correctly, they simply play and talk) till late into the night. It almost always has the Roman Catholic church overlooking it and,...Jump to full entry
Jan 27, 2008 - Villa Olivia
The morning after the wedding is when I finally took some time to get some nice pictures of the house Darin and I stayed in with our friends. We truly enjoyed Villa Olivia! I also have to mention (again) that the greatest breakfast ever was on this morning. Mimosas made from fresh-squeezed OJ and leftover wedding champagne! And we had been gifted a case of Veuve, nice champagne-- thanks John G! And then Marshall sliced up our leftover tres leches wedding cake and made it into french toast! Best. Breakfast. Ever.Jump to full entry
Jan 26, 2008 - The Wedding
The big day...we slept in late, but then we got up and got the house we rented, Villa Olivia, ready for 80 guests. Unloaded a bunch of trucks, and took a bunch of stuff down a bunch of stairs! But it was totally worth it, as all 80 guests kept telling us how much they loved the house. :) The bride got to be barefoot at her wedding, though we both wore our Brazilian flip-flops before and after the ceremony. We got some GREAT pictures from our many talented guests. And everyone enjoyed the picture-perfect wedding on the beach at sunset, along...Jump to full entry
Jan 21, 2008 - Sayulita
Houlala! notre conquête du soleil est fait!! Ce petit coin de paradis se nomme Sayulita. Nous sommes arrivés tôt le matin dans ce beau village sur le bord de la mer. Aprés un super petit déjeuner (dans le sable!!!) à notre nouveau camping el Camaron, nous installons nos tentes. C'est super beau, il y a comme une petite forêt de plamiers et une partie plus plage mais toujours sous les plamiers. Ensuite, on se dirige vers la plage! À notre grande surprise, notre petit coin de soleil s'avère être achalandé!!! Il y a des hotels partout et des...Jump to full entry
Jul 3, 2007 - Taxi or Bus?
Well, all bets are off because Laura picked us up at the airport!!! BUT!!!!!! Here's how you take the bus - and we would have!!!! Go straight out the front door of the airport, up and over the overpass to the other side of the street. While you are there eat -and this is mandatory- a marlin/shrimp burrito while waiting for the bus that arrives every 30minutes. It will take you on a beautiful jungle ride to Sayulita about 45 minutes north and drop you off at the zocalo in the center of town. We will take it when we leave to go back home. xoxoJump to full entry
