Hi ya'll

Fail .. so in cuffs I was , and what I thought was a local lock up noooo.
45 min drive to a JAIL ! Mind you these guys were pretty happy with themselves snagging an aussie as never had one before , so I got to see a magistrate n wore a lovely orange uniform for 14 hours , not the best fun ! But im all good in NC after running the gauntlet through Virginia with 3days of rain.... oh and have a date with court blah ..... so no need for ass kickin as im quite good at kickn my own lol
Digger still looking on the bright side of life......

White Boy in Mexico

Above and Below: Ek Balam and the Mayan world . . .


Last month I went to the Yucatan and stayed in Valladolid for a few days, then hiked Ek Balam and went to few cenotes.  I like to stay near Punta Sur (on the south end)of Isla Mujeres too.  This gal at Playa Norte was doing maintenance on her scooter in the street.  Fixing corroded connections, making sure the lights worked, etc.  She bought it new, it was stolen a few times, lost for almost 6 months on one occasion, but she always got it back.  Nice gal.  Everyone I meet in Quintana Roo and Yucatan are nice.  Someday I'll take my WLA down there and get lost for a few years.  I love it there.
