In hunt of our first Cenote!

We drove just over an hour when we hit a small town with signs for a Church, a Cenote and a Market – off we went in search.  We found the Market with only a few U-turns and a small issue with one-way streets.  Great snacks (well we will see how great a little later) – The watermelon was the best! With our bellies full we were back in search of the Cenote – in the middle of the town was this big hole deep in the ground (A Cenote is a limestone sinkhole that is filled with water. There are thousands in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula to swim, scuba dive or snorkel in) – we paid a few Pesos did a quick change and hit the water – cool and clean – We had birds flying all around nice way to spend the afternoon.  

After a quick drive-bye the church, well actually two drive byes we had fish tacos at this place for lunch – this might be a good time to mention Jake speaks better Spanish then I do – not sure what we ordered – it was good, but still not sure it we will be seeing it again real soon…

Mexican sign translation:  Tope – Big Ass Speed Bump (BASB)!  – Note-to-self:  you need to slow down when you see a Topa – Sign especially one with 3 bumps (Really-BASP) on it and when Jake is sleeping – kind of funny, but not for a sleeping Jake, my back or a very small rental car.

About JSH

There are more than 195 countries in the world by my count and I want to see them all before they all start to look the same – The United Nations has 192 members, but they do not recognized two independent countries, the Vatican City and Kosovo. U.S. Department of State recognizes 194 independent countries around the world, but their list has a political agenda and is missing Taiwan. All of this is without getting into the dozens of territories and colonies that are sometimes called “countries” such as Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Greenland, Palestine, Western Sahara, and even the components of the United Kingdom (such as Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England) and without counting states and provinces like Texas and Montréal that think they are independent countries. No madder how you count or tag them they are changing, starting to look the same and losing a little bit of themself every day. I do not want to see the world through the eyes of Las Vegas or Disney, like reading the Cliff Notes of a Hemingway novel; you get the idea but miss the point! Life is short, but how long live is up to you…
