    Your crazy wonderful life where cake floats in a sea of pineapple juice. You can’t even dream that up!

  2. I can’t believe that I never knew you were leaving in San Cristobal. That is one of my favorite places in Mexico. I got to travel to the outlying villages to see the crafts, particularly weaving, being done there. I was there over Easter–my was that special.

    And now Tulum, the fortress over the sea. I broke my toe getting into that sea to scuba. But a man already in the water “set” if for me right then & there. That was maybe 1975–a lifetime ago.

    Many, many best wishes for an easy transition and a wonderful time learning the particular dialect of this region!

  3. Have a safe and happy move. Look forward to some beach photos soon.

    The zeal with which you embrace this move is inspiring. With possible similar changes looming on the horizon, I’ve had some growing anxiety but this post has helped put me at ease. It reminded me that life just ain’t so complicated and if a big move comes, it comes.
    Also, that area around Tulum is the only place Nicole and I have been in Mexico. We visited the old village and imagined what it must have been like to witness an early morning blood letting and then walk fifty yards to the crystal blue ocean for a dip. Also, I think the place where “Blue Lagoon” was filmed is nearby.
    Peace and blessings to you on the next leg of your journey.

    What a hoot! I so enjoyed looking at your photos of the fair and all its wonderful delicious zaniness. It is inspiring to read about your move and your willingness to embrace it as a positive. We would love to live overseas with our family at some point, but so far have not been brave enough to take that leap. Thanks for the inspiration and good luck!

    Beth, I’m new to you and your blog. I found you via Mothering where I’m also a contributing blogger. I love your candidness and approach towards life. Good luck with this move and I’ll be following along as you make a life by the water. Best~

    Officially homesick for Mexico after seeing those photos of la feria. I lived in Veracruz for about a year until around when you were writing this post. I’ve got to tell my husband about this job Hunter got, “green building and solar peddling,” it was something he was considering doing too, but we didn’t realise it was possible in Mexico (for pesos). This post has renewed my hope that we can return again very soon (before our youngest turns 2 and her airfare increases!!).
