Last days in Mexico

Log Book - Mexico

It’s (already) our last moments in Mexico. This country has been a wonderful discovery for us and every day was more and more intense. It will keep a big place in our heart. We will go back to Mexico one day for sure! But it is not time yet for “making an overall assessment”, we still have a few stories up our sleeve …

 

On Saturday, we celebrated Delphine’s Birthday. Never would we imagine us, one day, eating a barbecue for her birthday in December! But the truth is: “Never say Never”! We ate a delicious « barbacoa Mexicano » with chorizo, beef and cactus leaves roasted. Absolutely gorgeous! And for the dessert, Fatima, Aldo’s wife (Mexikatzin’s brother) cooked a birthday cake « a la mexicana ». If you want to know a little more about this unforgettable birthday, we invite you to watch the video!

 

On Sunday, we participated to an indigene ceremony. The « ceremonia de las pipas ». A sacred ritual made by Mexican ancestors to connect the physical world and the spiritual world. It was a very good moment. What wisdom in their words, on their faces and their actions. We learned a lot again and we were happy to share this spiritual moment with this people.

We are preparing the spiritual circle.

On Sunday night, we took the bus to Veracruz. After six hours on the road, we arrived in the city at around 5:00 am! It was really early but it was a good occasion to be the witnesses of a wonderful sunup! We observed the sun behind the sea and which was coming up in the sky in only a few minutes, in a quiet and cool atmosphere. Fortunately, we had our camera with us and we could take a few shots to immortalize this moment.

Sun rising up in Veracruz

When we arrived in Chachalacas (a beach which attracts only Mexican people and not foreigners), we walked a little bit on the beach to choose our hostel randomly. « La cabana del pollo », chicken’s hut! What a name for a hostel! But for €12,50 the room we didn’t really care for the name. We wouldn’t find better.

What a contrast between the two sides.

While we were there we visited the side where the river flows into the ocean. We discovered a lush flora near desert dune! Mexico is a country of contrasts. And once again we could verify this quote. Off course we also tried the “siesta” (a national sport) in a hammock.

 

Here is Santos. A fisherman who was our guide for 2 hours.

When we got back to Mexico City on Wednesday, once again, the contrast was amazing: after the calmness of chachalacas we were in a crazy city. We never saw that much people in the metro or in streets. Now we know. And we can understand better what Mexicatzin was telling us: “if you can live in Mexico, you can live anywhere in the world!”

    Un barbecue en plein mois de décembre: peu habituel dans notre douce France.
    C'est un repas d'anniversaire bien original! Je suis ravie de voir que Del a eu
    un beau gâteau et des chants chaleureux (tout comme moi, sa juju!). Tu m'as
    manquée...
