Cozumel Day Six/Seven

16 Feb

We had an amazing trip to Cozumel. We had so many fun adventures and made lasting memories with family. It was wonderful to spend time together while relaxing and not worrying about work/responsibilities that wait for us at home.

On Tuesday we went into town to do a bit of shopping. I bought a beautiful purple and black blanket as well as some earrings and a pendant for my friend back home. Chris bought some vanilla and lots of sweets. He loved the chirro’s which his mother calls ‘Grease Sticks’.  Although perhaps unappetizing, it’s an accurate discription. They are coated in cinnamon and taste like the Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal.

On our last night we went into town to celebrate Mardi Gras. We had dinner at Casa Dennis. It is a wonderful little restaurant in town that served us large (and I do mean large) drinks and homemade, authentic food. It was fun to try new meals and hang out with the locals. Everyone is so nice and welcoming. They would give you the shirt off their backs if you needed it.

After dinner we walked (more like stumbled after those Daiquiris) into town to watch the parade. I’m pretty sure we were actually part of the parade at one point. It was fun dancing and singing in the streets with Chris, Rob and Jenna. We had a blast.

The last day we soaked up the lazy of the sunshine and packed our bags. We headed to the airport at noon wishing we had just a few more days in paradise.

…We will be back Cozumel!

Cozumel Day Four

10 Feb

So on the second day’s evening, Chris was terribly ill…with pneumonia. He was in bed for 36 hours basically comatose.  Thankfully we traveled with his family (… his dad is a Vet, his mom is an ER Nurse, his aunt also a nurse, his brother an Xray tech and his sister in law an Ultrasound tech) so there was no shortage of medical personnel ready to give diagnosis. After a short trip to the pharmacy he was on a couple different antibiotics and now feels MUCH better.

He was able to come out for a fun night in town- the 2013 Carnival!!! It was awesome to celebrate in true Mardi Gras style with the locals. What wonderful floats and costumes!

The festivities continue on Sunday night and Tuesday night- we are all looking forward to the party!
