Taking a vacation from our vacation, Part 1

It's been a busy month, so I haven't been blogging much. First, there was Thanksgiving -- we cooked a meal for about 15 people, including both Americans and Mexicans -- and then we went on a 10 day trip to Huatulco, San Miguel de Allende, and Mexico City.

Huatulco is a beach resort town, but not horribly touristy like Cancun or Acapulco.  It's only about 150 miles or so from Oaxaca, but since there's mountains between the two cities it's a six hour bus ride.  Or, if you're a relatively rich and spoiled American, you can shell out $200 (for 3 people) and take a 40 minute plane flight, which of course is what we did

So we spent a few days visiting various beaches or the hotel pool, swimming for a while, and then sitting in comfortable chairs while people brought us food and drinks. We also visited the turtle museum.

When they feed the turtles, the local lizards drop by for lunch too.

The water was beautiful and clear and fairly warm, considering it's December.

Indigo went snorkeling for the first time.

After swimming and snorkeling, there are coconuts.
