Mexico: Day 2 (Part 4)

April 18, 2011

It was then time to depart the jungle and begin our journey back to our resort.  But, our adventures were not over yet!  No, first we had to get back on the coolest mode of transportation ever.

After our hair was properly windswept and our hearts properly aflutter, we arrived at an unnamed roadside restaurant where we dined al fresco on some of the most delicious Mexican cuisine I have ever tasted.  I am this close to finally stating for the record that I believe Mexican food is the best in the world.

After our stomachs were nourished, we stopped at a plant farm that was run by a bunch of traditional women herbal pharmacists.  I would have loved to have played amongst the herbs all day long, since herbs are such a big part of my life being a Chinese Medicine Doctor, but we had other stops to make along the way home.

The next stop was a pueblo where a colorful Church caught my eye.  I think that is probably my favorite thing about Mexico: the colors.  The food, language, and culture are richly appealing, but the country is saturated with the most vibrant colors that no matter how many other countries you visit you can not get them out of your mind.

Our last stop for the day provided us with some humor.  I had spotted a sign cautioning for speed bumps that in my opinion looked a lot more like a female’s body!

While I thoroughly enjoyed our jungle excursion, I was eager to spend the next couple of days at the beach.

    There’s thunder and lightning outside my window this afternoon, so your glorious post of color and sunshine and herbs and crazy signs just made my day. 🙂

      I was so tired from the day in the jungle I totally spaced on taking food pics. It was just such good authentic Mexican, not greasy fake American-Mexican. Next time I have an incredible meal I promise to take pics for you!!!

    One guess what the flags remind me of…CUBA.

    (In a very strange turn of events, it happens that I’ll be back in Havana for work in December. LEGAL, this time, too. Heh. Which, of course, translates to: not as much fun!)

      Oh wow that’s AWESOME!!! I think you’ll actually have MORE fun now that you don’t have to worry about getting caught. Are you writing a story about Havana? Details!

    Ooh, Andi, you make me more excited to be starting my travels in Mexico and staying there for a good while to teach.

    Question – how do you generally find the food there as far as Vegetarianism goes? (Yes, I am one of you. Haha)

    I absolutely love that first picture. So gorgeous.

      You’re going to have the BEST time I know it!!! Do you speak Spanish? I think it’s REALLY easy to be a veggie in Mexico. So many awesome fruits and veggies and beans EVERYWHERE! Not to mention the churros con chocolate hahaha. That’s awesome that you’re a veggie too. XOXO

    I always love all the photos you include in your posts, beautiful! I chuckled at the “female body part” sign as I have a similar photo from when I visited Mexico, I figured my guy friends would enjoy it.

      Why thank you! It always fills my heart with joy to hear that people like my photos. Yeah, I love collecting funny/interesting signs from around the world.
