Baca – Even hotter than Merida!

Baca – Even hotter than Merida!

Since we’re with Chuck, we get a private tour of Pesa – home to the intensely hot, 100% homemade (casero) habanero sauce. And they don’t just make the orange stuff there; they grow the peppers onsite too. It took several tries on slow-mo for me to be able to decipher the brand on the label. ...

Just arrived last night, and the house we’re renting is even more gorgeous than the photos! I don’t have much time for a lengthy update (more on that later)… PS – Couldn’t resist the photo with the Sponge Shampoo & Tuna Tang.  Get yours at Super Aki!

Getting Flighty

Getting Flighty

This afternoon, we had a message on the answering machine from Continental.  The rep said that there was a change in our flight schedule to Merida and to call them back ASAP to discuss our options.  Arrgh!  My heart immediately skipped a beat, and I was already dreading trying to change the dates for the ...
