Return to Mexico

IMG_2023MANZANILLO, Nov. 12, 2018 — First: acknowledging that son Dexter and Sara Brown are right in the middle of their last of six performances of the very successful run of Great Falls, the Lee Blessing play they are premiering in New York City. Even from afar we can feel the excitement. (Ed. Note – The limited run of Great Falls has just wrapped up to much acclaim.)

IMG_2021These are the views from our balcony. We are chuckling over this strange old place: no wifi except in the lobby and then not free, ice is still not here though we called for it half an hour ago. Our bed is headed by a giant cockleshell which we’ve found will light up. But from our balcony here’s what you see. And we’re glad to be safely here.

We were walking along our corridor on the way to supper, then found the dining room was closed until 7, so we went back and ate leftovers and hard-boiled eggs from home and a PBJ sandwich.

Thanks to all for birthday messages! We had a good day.

Hotter here today. Coming up to lunch a lot of people moiling around in the lobby, which is where I have to go to do wifi.

  1. Lovely to see your first Mexican stop. I hadn’t realized you were heading down there so soon. LOVE the photo of Tom’s shadow/sillouette. And imagining the cockle shell bed-head, that even illuminates! I can indeed hear you two chuckling about that!

    I’m safely back in Greece but have had the worst case of jet lag I ever remember since travelling with very little children (whose jet lag is never coordinated with their mother’s!), Finally last night I collapsed on the couch at 6:30 pm. MADE myself finish my book so I wouldn’t go to sleep that early, but then slept – right there, with the classical music station playing all night long (heavenly – because I kept waking up just long enough to hear it and smile and then was down again) – slept from 8 pm to 6:30 – and feel like a new woman!


    Have seen a few photos from Dexter’s play – and can’t help but comment on how much he reminds me of his father!
