I wanted to blog today about nicer thoughts of Mexico. Last February I was lucky enough to spend a week on the Mayan Riviera with five of my best girlfriends. We had a riot. We enjoyed the luxury of a five star resort and had the the most wonderful time, enjoying sun, sand and sea, plus all the food and drink we could manage to consume.
Even when I go on vacation I can't forget my mini-mania. One of our expeditions was to an authentic Mayan village. (at least they told us it was authentic. We wondered if it was just for the tourists and all the Mayans went home to their air conditioned haciendas each night.)
My own Mayan girl is not as lovely as the real thing, but still I find her quite charming. She is about five inches high.
I love the little 'Day of the Dead" cabinet. It is made of cardboard and hand painted. The little figures inside are made of some sort of sculpty clay.
