Mayan Flavor

Just thought I'd show all that you don't have to be a "young chick" today to have fun in Mexico. After all, what happens in Cancun, stays in Cancun. These guys were our "dates" for a bonfire on the beach one evening. They were Mayan dancers and were performing their fire rituals. The beaches are sugar sand and the water is absolutely turquoise, cerlean, cobalt and ultramarine all swirled together, the food is fabulous, and the people are extremely friendly. Mayan culture abounds and the ruins we found at Coba and Tulum are worth the trip alone. Truly wonders of the world. I kept a journal on a sketch tablet and illustrated our little adventures to recapture our memories. Must confess that it was rather hard to come back to the real world of the Dallas airport at 50 degrees after being in the sun and surf for a week. Oh well, back to my happy little world of painting. By the way, I'm the barefoot tourist...
