There was a fire on my roof today


Firemen coming up the stairs sounded like an invasion of sorts. Think that scared me more than the actual fire. They were giants and there were so many.

Sian Ka'an biosphere reserve





About 3 hours south of Cancun and another 2 hours east by an incredibly bumpy dirt/rock road exists the Sian Ka'an biosphere reserve. We passed through this natural sanctuary on the way to Punta Allen, the largest (at pop 500) village in the reserve. Jeremy and I were lucky enough to hitch back out of the village with some friendly and insane Americans, Phil and Diana. We kind of feared for our lives as Phil drove like a bat out of hell through the twisting jungle, skimming over potholes full of water like a kid jumps rocks on a river, but it was a thrilling time.

I am so thankful that Phil and Diana made us stop (despite the rain) to get out and look at this beach, which was littered with trash from passing cruise ships but also full of sea life that you just aren't gonna find on beaches in Cancun.
