With such diverse people that pass by ,stay awhile it does make life interesting …………….. Most are lovely and pleasant that pass through and I find the ones that stay are on the same wavelength as I and it’s refreshing. I always say that people who come by here and especially that stay are meant to be here .
Then at times there are musical treats like the three germans that came with their guitar and politely asked if it was O K to play and sing , on their patio. Oh please do ,I said ,I would love it. I laid in my hammock at night listening to the beautiful melodic sounds as they harmonized wonderfully together. Needless to say I was lulled to sleep .They were only staying for one night but when breakfast time came they asked me if it was possible to stay another night. I checked the calendar to make sure they could , and another night they stayed and played. It was so calming and relaxing they could have stayed for longer . They were pleasant,talented and happy people.
Then there are the keen birdwatchers up early in the mornings without disturbing anyone. Quietly absorbing the stillness of the day . I cant say that I am knowledgeable about birds but living here I can see why one can get addicted and I have learnt some of them but Oh there are so many. If you look close at the photo you can see the large book on Birds of Mexico just opening to a page for me is mind boggling , so many species,colours etc
The next photo shows a couple from France riding their bikes around the Yucatan . They came looking for somewhere to camp . Before it was impossible here because of the terrain but now I had leveled an area for the budget traveler. Wow these people were really on a budget . They didn’t want to spend more than $300 pesos a day…………..In some towns they were even sleeping in the town hall/palacio……
I didn’t charge them that much to pitch their tent but I guess they thought they were in 7th heaven with the use of the pool and all…. They finished up staying three nights.
These groups of photos were taken on the night of Kens 50 Birthday .They are a group of Maya ruin enthusiasts , soon to publish a book with photos of quite unknown ruins AND for some they had permission from INAH.
His friends honoured him with Manuel playing mananitas a total surprise for Ken.Soon they were joined with two of my guests who are archeologists and all joined in with the playing and singing of some very common Mexican ballads ….. it was a another magical night to say the least…….
The music resounded through the night the full moon was at its highest and brightest . No where, have or do I ever experience these pleasures like here in Mexico
