Something weird happened to me today while I was watering the yard at our house sit here in Patzcuaro, my phone vibrated in my pocket. That in itself is fairly weird since, while we do have phone service, I handle most of my communications through my computer (Skype, FB Messenger etc) and my phone never rings. But, what it was telling me was even weirder. TimeHop, that little app that tells you what you posted on Facebook years ago, was ringing me to let me know what about something I had posted two years ago. I was about to delete…

So I guess whichever way we choose to head to it’s likely to be a win/win. Plus we’re bound to see some Yácatas.  Have a great weekend everyone!


As you’ve probably surmised by now, I am a lover of boats, lakes, history, islands and cool old towns. So far though, I’ve only been able to enjoy one or two of these things at the same time (rough, I know) so when we had the chance to step our game up and do all of them at once we jumped. Where could we possibly do this you ask? The island of Janitzio of course. Janitzio is the principal island of Lake Patzcuaro and is only accessible by boat, you know, because it’s an island. But it’s not just any island,…
