Arriving at #2 Azahar.

Day 2





Everything looks so much better in the daylight. I live on a small and quiet street. I just unpacked and cleaned up. I moved the table into another room, which overlooks the neighbor's tropical garden, and a coconut tree in our yard. I think the neighbor has a mango tree. I ate breakfast with about 20 teenage tennis players who were in an international tournament at El Racquet club. I ate Papaya, cantaloupe and drank OJ. Typical hotel continental breakfast. Erika, Quatain, and Andrea helped me to move into #2 Azahar.


Then I went shopping with Alyssa. She also took me on a tour of parts of the city. I got to see the school, which is a paradise. I also went to El Raquet Club. It is quite nice. A big tournament was going on, but Alyssa could not stay, but what I did see was impressive. The club also has weights, a couple of ellipticals and two pools. The one I like is under cover, so I will have to figure out when to swim.

We went on a search for a big jug of water. You buy and drink muchas aqua here. Thank goodness Alyssa is here. I would be lost without her.

The driving here is like velvet. No one uses their brakes; everyone rides each other's bumper, but no one crashes. It's quite a dance. When I got home, I unpacked, organized and ate a salad. I am getting used to the heat, so I might try sleeping without the AC. There are five ceiling fans here. Dogs are barking, but not constantly. For the most part, it is quiet.

I plan to explore tomorrow. Brave the streets and maybe take a cab.

I am pretty sure you are not in Kansas any more. Have a great adventure!
My first experience "getting sick" in Mexico (at age 10) involved nightmares and sleepwalking -- not a pretty sight...
