Playa del Carmen 2013

I'm 6 months into my sabbatical, and this next phase is a long-term stay in my favourite place: Playa del Carmen, MX. I'll be here for three and a half months! Today is Day 1. With such a long stay, it is highly doubtful that I will be posting everyday, but there will be some new highlights that I experience this time around. First, I'll be having friends coming to visit me as their first time here! Second, I need to find a new apartment big enough to accommodate my visitors!! I'm so thrilled to show my favourite place to some of my favourite people, and to see Playa again through new eyes!

I was lucky today to have my very own welcoming party: my friends Tim & Dee Dee from Minnesota that I've known for about 8 years now, their son Zach, his friend Meghan, and Dee Dee's sister Dawn. Here we are at Dirty Martini's for Ladies Martini night.

Off to dinner at La Mission. We ordered 2 seafood platters between the 6 of us, and it was enough. I must say, I'm often disappointment with the fresh seafood here. So, while it was fine, I'm not raving about it.

Thank you, Bram, for lending me your camera so that I can take better evening shots!
