Buenos Dias

Buenos Dias from sunny, warm, amazing Cozumel, Mexico where I have been since Thursday! It has been so nice here - great to get away from the freezing, rainy NYC weather and to sit on the beach in the sunshine eating chips and guac while sipping on strawberry margaritas! Yum!

Our hotel, the Aura Wyndham, is awesome - especially our swim up suite. Yes, you walk out of the room and onto a patio that's directly on the pool. Coolest concept ever!

I have a ton more pics in my camera, but of course I forgot to bring the upload cable (gr!) so you'll have to wait til I get back to see them.

Today we went swimming with a dolphin, which is something I've wanted to do for a long time. Our dolphin's name was Ixchal, a traditional Mayan name we're told, and she was super friendly and sweet. We got to kiss her, hold her, ride on her belly, and have her push us on a boogie board. It was awesome. THe only bad thing? I got stung by a jellyfish while in the ocean halfway through. But I hung in and finished cause I didn't want to miss out on the experience.

Anyway, just wanted to quickly update you on our trip and say it's been very relaxing and nice and really couldn't be better. I highly recommend if you go to the Carribean to try the week after New Year's - it's totally dead here, which makes it even more pleasant.

I'll be sad to go home tomorrow, but will definitely be returning with many good memories. :)
