Second Week at Xpu-Ha

Playa_ZocaloTwo weeks almost gone, two weeks until we fly out for the Christmas Holidays. We have had pleasant weather here all week, not too hot, not too cool and a few rain drops here and there. We miss our 4 kids their spouses and our 12 grandkids, hopefully we will see them all at our big Christmas party back home near Cleveland, Ohio.

Playa_5th AveLast Friday we made our first visit to Pizza Leo’s. Our RV friends Robb & Percilla from Manitoba were kind enough to drive us there. Of course we got the Extra Grande Leo, so I have pizza for lunch all week.

We decided to go to Playa del Carmen for the day on Wednesday. Maybe we could find something for daughter Joan’s Feliz Navidad party.

Playa_PlatesWe jumped on a Collectivo, a big van that runs from Playa to Tulum and back about every 10 minutes for about 30 pesos per person.

The street that runs closest to the beach in Playa is called 5th avenue. It’s a walking street and it goes on for at least 30 blocks. The stores seem to repeat over & over again as you walk to the North from the Ferry dock; jewelry, cigars, restaurant, Mexican crafts (of course some made in China). bar, ice cream shop, t-shirt shop, silver, massage parlors, clothing and bathing suits. We found a few things to bring to the party.


Here is Peggy with a few of her thin friends.


Of course my friend looked just like me.
