Bumpy and Buggy in San Pedro


If there was ever a time to consider pimping your ride with a lockable glove box, it would be now so your bug spray can be kept safely on your cart at all times.

The skeeters are mini monsters right now and out in full force, day and evening, this is the worst I remember seeing them in a long time. It would make a good addition to our tropical horror film ideas along with night Dennis Paul and I outran the malathion truck twice on the back road near home.

Along with the bugs the back roads are crazy bumpy right now. Girls wear your sports bras if you are driving off the beaten path right now 🙂

I will leave you with some pictures I took today when we went to Amal Hardware store to get some screws. Dick building a new garage in his back yard. Off to go get ready for a hot date with tacoboy, he asked me to meet him for dinner at Banana Beach.

I had to log in on my phone and update you on my date. We are at El Divino cuddled up on a big comfy couch in the lounge watching The Hangover. Our tri chocolate obsession just got served, we shared shrimp quesadillas for our main course.

    Sounds like a shopping trip to San Ignacio market is in order. Lol @ rich and shameless in the pineapple department. We do have a budget friendly option a bag of sliced pineapple costs $2bxd 🙂

    My San Ignacio homie recently contacted said she acquired a decent pineapple at the local market for 1.50$.=3.00bz. At the Corozal market it is $4.50 bz. San Pedro life is affordable only to the rich and shameless at least in the pineapple department.:)

    Not all Charlotte and also depends where you stop. What part of Yucatan?

    Are all seasonal fruits that pricey? I better stock up on repellent. I’ll be in the Yucatan next week.

    Agreed it is a little pricy. Factor in barge in regards to things costing more here. I will have to check how much they are going for on the mainland.

    That is a little pricey for pineapple. The local Super Walmart has a bunch from Costa Rica now for 2.50$= 5$bz. Just sayin’
