I am posting from an ice cream shop on Isla Mujeres and a thunder storm is rolling in, otherwise the weather has been hot and humid. I have never experienced a tropical climate before, but I am slowly acclimatizing. I should go now before it begins raining. :)

Rolling In
When I was growing up in the U.S. Midwest (Iowa/Illinois), I used to go out to the porch and watch a thunderstorm roll in. They are utterly breathtaking and beautiful. They are alive, moving of their own volition. Moving with purpose, as if they are seeking something. After the rain started falling, we would leave the windows open to welcome the cool air storms brought.

I miss storms like that. They are rare here in Japan. Usually the heat just builds up until it's absolutely oppressive, then it dumps for a day or two. Secondly, it doesn't leave that cool freshness behind. Ultimately unsatisfying.

Best regards,

Re: Rolling In
I've never witnessed a really massive thunder and lightning storm. The closest I've experienced was in Eastern Washington where the lightning struck a lampost in front of the house.

"Moving with purpose, as if they are seeking something.

They do seem like some kind of sentient entity to me.

Oh, you, how lovely to see this post from the island...it sounds exquisite. Storms on islands, over the ocean, one of the pleasures of life for certain : )

Enjoy your time and all the best : )

I was on Isla Mujeres two summers ago, and I absolutely loved it. I'd suggest renting a golf cart and going all the way around the island. (or bikes, or mopeds.) On the southern most tip of the island there is a great park that is mostly a reef. Ah, the memories. I don't know if you're a drinker, but the mojitos are fabulous!

Anyway, congradulations on the wedding, the trip and the birthday! enjoy it!
