Room To Think

 It is renowned for having the 2nd largest reef in the world and some of the most spectacular diving & snorkeling in Mexico but I am on land chasing the Carnival Miracle out of New York, first, taking a ferry to Playa Del Carmen, then a shuttle to Cancun Airport.

The Documentary of Cozumel that Cousteau Never made

In 1955, Jacques-Yves Cousteau made a 1 hour 23 ... a TV special that  launched Cozumel's diving industry. Yet, none of the footage was shot in Mexico,according to the  Costeau society.
They  say that  Le Monde du Silence is confused with another guy from Sea Hunt and Flipper fame, Rene Cordova  who shot Un Mundo Nuevo. The story got repeated so many times, however,  it has become fact, even by me!

Now I know why  Jacques Cousteau, legendary ocean explorer, called it the "best diving area in the world."....

 I blogged and youtube'd  about it, and it's even been set to music in John Denver's Calypso.


 I guess if you tell a story long enough it DOES become fact.


They asked me why I don't quit drinking, I told 'em i'm not a quitter but...


I've been to Mexico so many times and taken life with a grain of salt and a slice of lemon and a shot of tequila.


You know when Tequila is talking.where you drink triple, see double and act single. It has a very distinctive voice. Sublime is no longer something I choke on after one.

 I' I've gone native in a Col Kurtz sort of way, drinking tequila, and sporting a Hecho in Mexico Straw Cowboy hat--but not this trip. No more killing precious brain cells. The Mayan calender-end of the world- has to wait. It's already tomorrow in Australia


A Corona in one hand and Tequila glasses, shots to the head 
cuz some memories they need assassins.



 I used to be a MexiCAN't; now I'm a MexiCAN


You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline - it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. 

The Cliff notes on Corona, the gold standard for Latin American lagers. Position in the beer category: Mexican Beer Slogan: Change your Latitude Mantra: Vacation, No Worries, Relax Corona's slogans (it has had so many) convey the feeling of the brand: vacation
