Sunday, I ventured out on my own and went to La Cruz for the farmer's market. Best farmer's market I have ever been to in Mexico. Vegan muffins, cilantro hummus, tortilla de espanola and more. The prices for the crafts and jewelry were much higher than usual, but the only people shopping there, were Gringos, mostly retired white people. Later that day, Alisa, Jared, Leisel, and I went to Sayulita, a small, hippy, surfing town. It was being torn up and under a lot of construction, but it reminded me a lot of Tamarindo, Costa Rica. Leisel is a friend of Alisa's from church and we stayed with their family. They own a Segway tour, so we got to be tourists and do a Segway tour for FREEE!! That night we had dinner at Jeffrey's, the owner of Starfire in Skagway. I live next door to this thai restaurant and eat their curry weekly. Abby Jo from Skagway was also living down here for the winter and it was fun getting to know all three of these girls more closely over dinner.
Finally on Monday, the sun came out for about an hour. We were at the beach and it was lovely. Here are some pics of the rest of the trip.
