the last few weeks i didn't have much time to upload photos to flickr, but i finally finished going through and uploading them today while sitting in a cafe in tucson.

check out pictures from acapulco, ixtapan de la sal, oaxaca, palenque, and isla mujeres.

trouble's beauty salon

after staying cooped up in trouble's house for a few days last week while it snowed and insisted on being really cold outside, we decided to have a girl's beauty day. we dug out the clippers and had some hair-cutting fun. both trouble and lindsey ended up with shaved heads. see more pics at flickr

isla mujeres

our last day...we rented a scooter to drive around the island, we met many new iguana amigos, we finally went snorkeling in the crystal blue and calm Caribbean Sea, and i found a new pair of my favorite bug-eyed sunglasses. lindsey got lots of water up her nose, her lips turned blue from the cold, and she locked the scooter keys in the storage compartment, but she had a fabulous day anyway.

mayan ruins - temples, tombs, inscriptions, glyphs - in the hot and sweaty jungle. and more beautiful, crystal clear water, no swimming allowed.

EDIT: more pictures

Agua Azul

we didn't get a picture of the giant cascade, but this is where we swam all day - no flesh eating animals.

Agua Clara

we were unsure why you couldn't swim here. was it the current or flesh-eating animals in the water?


you can kind of see the waterfall behind lindsey's gigantic head. you can walk behind the waterfall and up to a cave with a river in the middle of it. amazing.


oaxaca is a place full of museums, galleries and moles (mo-lays). our favorite exhibit was alejandro santiago's 2501 Migrantes. we wish it was as big as the history museum.

from acapulco we went to Ixtapan de la Sal to visit Lindsey's amigo Pablo, and his family. en route, Lindsey came down with a nasty tropical something-or-other and when we finally made it to Pablo's, her fever was rip-roaring. it took about 5 or 6 days for her to recover (with enfermera incredible - Rocio - taking excellent care of her), but finally we were able to go see the Grutas de Cacahuamilpa, an enormous cave system. if I understood the guide correctly, the known cave is 6km long and 2km of it is developed for us unprepared tourists. We also got to swim in the baƱito, a highly mineralized hot spring, play with 5 adorable kittens, and eat the most amazing chile rellenos ever. ¡Muchisimas gracias for todo a Pablo, Rocio, y Alejandra!

we have one week left and are on a whirlwind tour of southern Mexico, trying to make it to Cancun for our flight, but still see everything. we spent one night in Mexico City, are in Oaxaca for two nights and then on to San Cristobal las Casas on an overnight 12 hour bus ride tomorrow night.
