Cancun Trip Report: Day 5, Coba

Day 5 Wednesday, we drove over to Coba, at my friend Alicia’s recommendation. It’s on the way to Chichen Itza anyway. (The road here is full of pot hole, so watch out!) It is a wonderful site, with three major groupings of ruins that are spread out in the jungle. Since the distances between are rather large (but still walkable), … Continue Reading →

Cancun Trip Report: Day 4, Tulum Part 3

Day 4 After we were done at Tulum, we drove back towards Cancun, and at yes, Cancun for Dummies’ recommendation, we stopped by the Xel-Ha (pronounced Shell-ha) ruins.

Cancun Trip Report: Day 2, Cancun

Day 2 On Sunday we tried in vain to find a Mexican Catholic Church to go to Mass at. We followed one lead from a bellboy that had use looping up and down the whole island. After 40 fruitless minutes on the bus, we decided to go to the Sheraton for a later mass. We got off the bus and … Continue Reading →

Cancun Trip Report: Day 1, Cancun

Day 1 Saturday, we took some pics of the water and of the hotel’s pool, which was very neat. This is the view from where our room was.


Doug and I went to Cancun, Mexico for 7 days for our honeymoon. We stayed at the Krystal in the Hotel Zone. Cancun is an island shaped like a 7; our hotel was where the bend in the 7 is. North of the top of the 7 is Isla Mujeres where there is a coral reef and Garrafon National Park. … Continue Reading →

Botanical Garden in DC

Only 4 pics were any good, and they’re not great. I had a crappy camera back in the day.

NYC Trip, Bronx Zoo

Here are a few photos I took on a trip to the Bronx Zoo in 2000. It was a really cool trip in which awesome things were done. But I don’t have a lot of photos from it. These were actually taken on film and scanned.
