Isla Mujeres Photos

Here are some photos that show the spirit of Isla Mujeres. I am definitely coming back here. It's so easy and fun to be here. It might make me lazy, though.

The three lies of Isla Mujeres:
1. "I am leaving tomorrow" - the running joke is that everyone comes for a few nights but stays for a few weeks. It is hard to leave
2. "I am not drinking tonight" - even if you aren't getting drunk, you are having a beer or two, because after about 8 pm there is nothing to do but have a beer, and you can't sleep because the music is so loud
3. "I love you" - the same story wherever there are groups of Latin men, I think

So far, I have stuck to my leave date, I have had beers even when I said I am not drinking, and only one man has told me he loves me. Ha! The three lies hold true....

And now, on to some photos, ya? I can't get the captions to work, so here are what the photos are of...I am sick of messing with the layout so deal with the ugly ok?!?!?!

  1. Hi Anna!!! So it seems like you are enjoying your trip thus far! I think it is awesome to be out on your own. I went to russia on my own and luckily when I got there my best friend met me and all was well. Without her I really could have not gotten around in the little town we were in. Anyway enjoy and your next trip should include Cori and I :-) I bet between the three of us we would cause some trouble :-), but good trouble! SMILE :-)

  2. Ugggggh, looks awful Banana! Meanwhile, in Britain, it is windy and pouring rain. Luckily there are plenty of pubs and old buildings to distract us.

    Keep having a fabulous time traveling! WOOT!
