I’m a Grey Gappie

I’ve been looking forward to this year, and think a blog might be the way to communicate with loved ones.


Rio Lagartos

We took a flamingo tour today from Valladolid to Rio Lagartos, which is a fishing village.

Our boat took us through mangroves with crocs, birds and this strange crab

to the flamingos.

We also stopped to see the red lake.

On the way back to Valladolid we visited the Mayan pyramid, Ek Balam.

Back in Valladolid, we had a tasting at a tequila distillery,

where I bought the original chewing gum.

Valladolid, Mexico

We caught a bus to the small town of Valladolid and settled in at our hostel.

We wandered the pastel coloured colonial streets,

which boast a few Mayan touches.

Seeking respite from the blazing heat in cafes, we drank lemonade with basil,

and ate egg tortillas in pumpkins seed sauce.

We explored a 500 year old Franciscan convent.

On our way home, we stopped to look at the art in a restored mansion.

The skies opened,

so we waded home.

We’re stuck inside this rainy evening, hence the long post!
