Mar 7, 2011 - Ek Balam and Valladolid

Up at 6:30 and to the lobby by 7:00. Bus takes me to “base camp” - where all the tours seem to eave from. There were only three other people on my tour, a couple about my age and their teenage daughter. They were quite nice but all three were fluent Spanish speakers, as was the guide, so there were side conversations going on that I could only partly pick up on, but most everything was in pretty broken English. Off we went to Ek Balam (Black Jaguar) – two hours through the Yucatan jungle – not at all what you would expect. It's winter here...

Jan 26, 2011 - Run Through The Jungle

Over on the mountain, thunder magic spoke-Creedence Clearwater Revival We hit the sack by 9pm last night exhausted from yesterdays exercise in adrenaline depletion. But getting up this morning was shear pleasure for me because we have scheduled back-to-back private tours again with our same awesome guide from yesterday! After grabbing a quick latte at the god-sent Starbucks around the corner, we were picked up again at 7am. Today was to be a longer day of travel. First scheduled stop was the smaller ruins of Ek Balam, then onto the more...

Jan 17, 2011 - Merida

After a couple of boring days in Campeche we headed to Merida, capital of Yucatan. We arrived late afternoon and headed straight for our hostel where it turned out, once again, that our reservation had been lost (shaking fists at Hostelbookers.com). Luckily the owner was around and managed to find us a private single room with shared bathroom and give us a whopping discount because we had to share a single bed and a bathroom for a night. We ran into a couple of guys that had been on a few of the bus trips and at other hostels with us so...

Nov 13, 2010 - November Namaste

Wow. Interesting how I popped out these entries right at the start of my journey. Now that I am more adjusted to the culture shock and have finally settled down in my new house, things seem more natural and I am much more arrived so to say, in Mexico. Lets see. Basically there is so much shifting for me all the time, my health, ideas, spirituality, location, support... ect. that it becomes hard to know where to start. Coming back from Cancun has mainly been about finalizing the amazing house I am now occupying. Today I bought fabic to make...

Oct 27, 2010 - Cancun, Sickness

Hola hola, long time no writttyyy no? I am still currently in Cancun, was supposed to be here with my company for about 9 days for a dance festival, but things happened and my company left within 3 days of being here because the festival didn´t have enough money to support us. Well I am still here on this wednesday mainly because I have been pretty sick. Some freaking flu hit me on Sunday right before I was about to dance. Thank god I found ADVIL because I was able to acutally move my body for those 20 minutes of dancing, although honestly...

Oct 19, 2010 - Casita Nueva!

Hola del pais loco! I am sitting inside La Flor del Santiago. I feel a bit more centered after finally mediating, which I have not attempted to do really formally for 2 months now. ARG. And now I learn what happens when one is not FULLY FULLY connected to their own power and intuition. Basically all I will say is that I am officially starting a new chapter of my life. Bye bye old tempoarary house space,,, and welcome my amazing cute house in downtown! Really.. I don't know where to start. I do want to keep this journal going even just to...

Oct 6, 2010 - musings

Where does time go? What is our conception of time anyways? Where does money go? What is money anyways? I currently am sitting inside a beautiful restaurant enjoying my vegetable soup with garlic bread. I have to come into town now to use the internet because for a few days now the internet has not been working in my "temporary space". All is perfect because I have been flowing in a kind of new schedule. I wake up at 7:10ish, get my butt out the door, either walk to the center or hop on a bus. Once in the center I find my way to the next...

Sep 30, 2010 - REMINDER. balance.

OK. I need to stay in balance. I am starting to move back into the direction of stability, clarity, and grounded strenth. Nothing happens on accident... and I can say I am eternally gratefull for the way things have been flowing in my life and the way things will always continue to flow effortlessly in and out of my experience. I am writing this note as a reminder to myself and who ever else needs it. BALANCE. Find my (your) balance. This means in one way; to be fully aware of what and how I am manifesting at every moment. Living in Mexico,...

Sep 26, 2010 - Energy of the woooombbb

I am writing this from a long, eventful, and possibly the most busy week yet. This past Friday and Saturday I performed in "Cuando Tenga Tiempo mi suicido" (when I had the time of my suicide") I was fortunate to have a beautiful solo/ duet.. where I could express how I love to move in the most authentic way possible. It is always incredible to hear what peoples reactions are, and how my dancing has moved them in one way or another. Quite interesting. So now we have a two day "break" and will start rehersal again on Wednesday, for what I...

Sep 20, 2010 - Bull fights in taxi style adventure

wow. Haha I guess I seem to start my entries with wow a lot huh? No wonder. Just to keep those of you updated on my emotional statuses... this past week has been more or less hard for me. I have had SO much free time and I had no idea what to do with it. It was intensified by wanting to work on the house I am "supposed" to be moving into, but not having any resources to do so. But alas I ended up buying all the paint for the house, now I just need brushes to appear magically, and someone to fix the fucking roof. hahah. I was inside the...

Sep 16, 2010 - Leopord Man, Margaritas, Free time

Hm.. Where to start. This always seems to be the question I have nowadays. Well last night the official celebrations of 200 years of independence of Mexico begun. Usually there are big FESTIVALS in the main streets... ect, music, churros, lots of special fried Mexican food. A friend and I (Miely)walked all the way to the main street where the festivities were. There was a huge ass line to get into some crowded area where the music would be happening... so we decided to walk back to the main square in the center of Merida. Miely practicing...

Sep 12, 2010 - Sit. relax. eat corn.

Oh wow. Fustrations. Where do they originate from? My own personal idea of my own personal agenda. Just trying to wait patiently for work to start happening on the house. I have the key. I walked into the house today and spent a while brushing down cobwebs. I discovered that I couldn't even plug the beautiful new fridge into the powerjack.. because it doesn't match/fit. The toilet didn't get fixed like the owners said it would.... hm.... It is just really fustrating to want to move ahead and do somework. BUT i am incaple right now of doing...
