After several weeks of delay (mostly unavoidable), I am finally leaving on my journey south tomorrow. For my first day, I will fly into Cancun and then catch a bus to Playa del Carmen. I have planned for about 10 days of wandering in the Yucatan and then it will be on to Belize. My flight leaves at 8:40 or thereabouts, so it is going to be an early morning, if I sleep at all. Methinks I need a beer to calm the excitement. I think I have everything I need, but I am sure I have forgotten something- I never get going without a few hiccups. Case in point- my trip from Grande Prairie on Friday involved flight delays, a frantic race across Calgary, and at some point I was sprinting down Bowness Road, dodging traffic and trying to catch my errant hat. This was all for a one hour flight in Alberta. Once you add foreign languages and passports into the mix, everything just gets more fun. Onward and upward!
