Lo Logramos!

last night

We did it. We live in a beach house. It’s raining. We may be here for a few months. When next we move it will be into a house of our own. This place will feel like home in a week. Malcolm was insightful when he said that moving to Progreso is like moving to Mexico all over again. It’s rustic and rougher and we must be resourceful. There are more stray dogs and no fresh milk.

this morning

I wake up and it is bright, blue and scrubbed. We slept with the windows open under down. We do an errand in town and then drive south to Merida to work in a café. Maybe when the day is done we will swim in the nearest cenote or maybe just go for a beer on the beach. It´s January 16 and sunny here.
