sunny 32 °C

Wednesdays are jam session day at Faces Restaurant, and what a crowd there was today. I am glad we arrived early. We got a great table close to the front. The musicians were glad to see Adam but not enough to start with him right away. There was a bit of a territorial feeling going on; even when this great drummer arrived he wasn't even included. It was not quite happening the way we had hoped it would and ended up leaving early.

We made up for it with a jam night to remember with 23 people in attendance. I just love impromptu events; I think they are what make me the happiest, especially when they are such a big success as it was. To see the mix of generations enjoying themselves equally was such a delight. I am really really glad that Faces didn't take him away from this setting.


I returned home after helping with the bagging of food for the foodbank, too late to say goodbye to Liam and Eric as they went off to a cenote before catching the bus to Cancun. I think they had a wonderful time but perhaps a bit too short. I think you need to stay at least 10 days but preferably 2 weeks.

We all expedited Sarah at the ADO bus station near the Fiesta Americana,
it was fun having her around with the rest of the gang. Once the bus got underway we made our way along the Paseo Montejo, a boulevard which is designed to look like the "Champs Elyssee", for a leisure stroll. We then topped the day off with a lovely leisure lunch in the terrace restaurant of Cafe Creme.


Finally it was warm enough and not windy to sit outside and play a fun game of Rummykub. I didn't win this time, much to my chagrin! But at least I enjoyed my last bottle of Noche Buena (the mexican end of year Bock Beer) with our chilli dinner! Oh how I wish Dara had bought a couple of cases before the stores ran out of them! It is my favourite!


As I sit here in the early morning with the sun rising behind the house and lighting up the wall a cruise ship is on the horizon approaching the port of Progreso. It will be crazy time in town today as there is the Mardi gras parade when all the locals come out to play, and with the cruise ship a shit load of passengers are to add to the mix. We have a table booked at our usual spot at Flamingos restaurant. Let the fun begin! It is always a fun time in Progreso during the parade.


This is Sheena and Adam's last day here it will be an exciting one for sure! Next week will be so quiet I won't know what to do with myself!
