I Took a Little Hiatus

You may have wondered where the heck I've been for the last two months.  I certainly wasn't here, posting new recipes!  Well, after 20 years of soaking up the Portland winters in all their rainy, ice-storm glory, I finally decided to take a winter off.  It just so happened that my partner and I had breaks in our jobs at the right time, so we saved up and took off!  Here's some photos of our six weeks spent in the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico.

Mt. Hood, departure day



Playa del Carmen - I hadn't lost my sickly palor yet

Playa del Carmen had some amazing food

The Obligatory Margarita Shot

Tulum


Pollo en Salsa Verde

Chile en Nogada, deconstructed.  Salmon. Cenzontle Restaurant - very GF friendly.

Salbutes - a traditional Yucatec food.  Manjar Blanco Restaurant.

Mérida


Gran Hotel, Mérida


My tan.


One of the oldest cathedrals in the New World, 1598

There is a free performance in the main square almost every night in Mérida.

Uxmal

Mérida has tons of Art Deco buildings from the 1920's
