When we were in Mexico last week, we stayed at a resort in Playa del Carmen. Now don’t get me wrong, it was beautiful, but I love Mexico Mexico.
The part where pesos (not American dollars) are the most common form of currency.
Places like Cuernavaca, Mexico City and Valladolid, a town that is beyond picturesque.
We stopped at Valladolid — all too briefly — on our way back from Chichen Itza (whose pyramids, unfortunately, you can no longer climb).
We were there as the sun was setting so it was cool enough to walk around (temperatures hit a scorching 36 degrees earlier in the day).
It was all so beautiful it made me want to buy a hammock, learn Spanish, and move there.
