DEC12. Instagram various aspects
Walking down 5th Avenue, passing a lot of restaurants…this one finally caught my eye. La Vagabunda. 5a Av. Norte entre calles 24 y 26 Norte. http://www.lavagabunda.com. I ordered the burrito deluxe for brunch. Eggs, sour cream, and veggies.
Sushi Club: 6p Sake Nigiri, $135 pesos (about $10 usd)
Mint lemonade at Sushi Club. I didn’t order it. The bartender comped it to me. It is delicious!
23DEC12. Playa Del Carmen, Mexico.
If online information is any indication, there shouldn’t be any rooms available in any part of Mexico. I came to Playa Del Carmen from Cancun this morning (a modern, a/c, smooth colectivo -mini bus- for 34 pesos, 66 km) fully expecting to sleep on the beach for the unforeseen future. However, the first hotel I walked by, La Palma, was advertising a vacancy. I went in and it turns out a spacious single room is going for $35 a night! Five dollars less than the decrepit, yet charming, hosteI just left in Cancun. And the internet kept saying these dates around Christmas are nearly impossible. Yet here I am.
