Our first two plus weeks have been amazing and we're enjoying life in a great Mexican community.

Plus, this year we have our car and the responsibility of being part of what I call anarchy driving, where there are apparently no rules, few street signs and optional stop signs. You have to remain keenly aware of buses, motorbikes, dogs, and the oft unlabeled “topes” (serious speed bumps).
|Potluck fun: Ulla (in red) made margaritas|
for the ladies (with Ziggy from Poland)
We enjoy connecting with old friends and meeting new in the dry boat yard, where we live onboard, up and down the ladder. We’ve attended two potlucks with people from Canada, England, Poland, Argentina and of course, the US. Such a melting pot of adventuresome individuals, it rocks.
In the boatyard, we are working on Pura Vida projects so she’s ready for a full season of cruising. Progress! We are thankful for Gabriel and Arnulfo, the yard managers, and have hired Gama, the stainless steel guy and Chaba, the electrician for small repairs.
