I’ve been in Mexico for a couple of days now, and it’s taken me a bit to get in the groove of things, but I’m starting to relax and enjoy myself. One of the things I love about Mexico, besides the people (awesome) and the food (spectacular), is the colorful architecture. Today’s photo is of a hostel in Playa del Carmen. The colors literally looked like someone painted them on with jumbo crayons. Speaking of painting with jumbo crayons, I’ve been doing a bit of driving around the Yucatan and I have one word of advice to the Mexican department of transportation; “More yellow paint on the TOPES please!!” For my Mexican fans, and those who have traveled here, you’ll know what I mean. For the rest of you, a TOPE is a giant speed bump of one form or another (possibly a ship rope lying across the road), and they are meant to either slow you down (when you see them, which you don’t, hence the yellow paint issue), or annihilate your rental car’s shocks. But that’s my only gripe! I swear… the guacamole totally makes up for it!
I forgot to mention last week’s winners to the travel post. The winners of the super cool lens cloths are Laurie Ferri and the workinprogress101. Thank you to everyone for your useful tips!
