Merry Christmas to all

Coughing, sneezing and wheezing , these are the sounds of my office today. It seems that over the merry Christmas holidays, people have forgotten to bundle up and stay warm. So now, with air conditioning at half throttle, people everywhere are dealing with runny noses and watery eyes.

But it was a merry Christmas for me! Friends, family and loved ones all around, joined in spirit, if not in body. My family is a spread out one, through countries and continents. We rarely cross paths but when we do, it is a thing of beauty. Family unseen in years, aged and different, yet fundamentally the same. It is always a joyous reunion, generously laden with shows of affection, and the occasional promise of contact.

This is my family, these are my friends. I would not change them for anything in the world and can only hope that they grow in numbers and in variety.

Catching some fish at Utz Tzaba

Today we went to monterrico to see hotels for the big wedding. Saw a couple of places, and everything was pretty good so we stopped for lunch.

Here's a picture of my choice of lunch and I've got to say, I was blown away! At the Utz Tzaba hotel I had one of the best fish fillets that I've had in years! Even Susan, who is definitely not a fish lover, actually liked it too!

That was good enough for me, any kitchen that is putting out food that will blow me away like that, has earned itself a chance to be the place where we are to wed.

BlogPress and iPhone

Let it not be said that I do not make an effort!! Yes, I've been MIA and while my lone reader may not actually remember that I have this blog I will prevail! Writing is a joy in and of itself so I will try to keep up with myself through here. I figure that if I can do facebook, why not my blog?

So here I am, with my recently downloaded blogpress app so that not being at my computer can no longer be an excuse!! More posts are sure to follow and. Lot of food to be discovered. Bon voyage!!
