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.
