Dear Chaac, Thanks a Lot.

After a week of lovely weather, Saturday afternoon was suddenly filled with ridiculous amounts of rain. Strange, since rainy season is now over. (Here in the Yucatan Peninsula, we like to attribute these shenanigans to Chaac, the Mayan god of rain.)

Luckily our house doesn’t flood, but several hours of non-stop heavy rain did cause my backyard to look like a pond:

Aaah, paradise.

Luckily the rain cleared out by Saturday evening. We had to cancel our plans of going to a nightclub in the Hotel Zone because of flooding, but we did get to go to one of my favorite downtown spots, Ora Si! Mariscos y Chan Chan (horribly long name, great place).

With the sun shining and the birds singing, on Sunday Jorge and I toured the Hotel Zone a little (our new Sunday tradition), then went to his aunt’s house for fried fish, pico de gallo and tacos.

In the end, a potentially wasted weekend was saved by sunshine once again!

    • It’s on the top floor of Plaza Peninsula! (where Rush used to be) They’re open during the day for lunch and dinner, but we have only been after 11 pm when there’s more of a bar atmosphere.

      Amazing views of the Hotel Zone, pretty decent prices, great music, really good seafood.

  1. I’m glad you’re getting sunshine, hun. We had some unusual freezing weather here for the last fortnight. It finally looks like it’s brightening up. 🙂
