Cozumel – 20 years later and it is still wet

It was about twenty years ago when Alice and I last visited the little island of Cozumel just off the coast of Mexico.  Twenty years ago, before kids, and cash…  the island is much like we remember it – wet! While Jake and I were making our way across from the mainland, Alice and Maggie were sitting by the pool quietly reading a book (well as quiet as one can be when Maggie is with you) when the ocean wiped up a storm for the boys on the ferry as well as the girls by the pool.  The rain passed like our vacation will, quickly, leaving the girls soaked and us a little woozy.  We all met for dinner in the main town to plan out our time on the island.  That time kicked off with a game of cards in our room before bed with Maggie winning and me loosing.  It might be a long week, Aunt Minnie can you sympathize?

 

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…
