A week in the heat of Mexico without the kids can really sweat out what ails you. (Let's not discuss the stomach bug I brought back as a souvenir). The sunlight seems to shine so brightly and the reflections of turquoise, white and pink hues seem extra saturated and really stood out for me. I tried to be up for sunrise to catch the golden glow but most of what I saw was the harsh light reflecting off water and the glass sculptures at midday.
We stayed in Isla Mujeres (a small island close to Cancun) for a few days and explored the town and sculpture garden by bike. One morning I biked to the Cliff of the Dawn, the easternmost point of the Mexico and so that I could say that I was the first person to greet the sun in Mexico that day (lol).
