¡Cuidado! ¡Topas!

Dreaming of the Yucatan, where many things look like this:

Or this:

Where cemeteries are cheery..

.. and tooth pulling is cheap:

Mr. Cats lives here.

And magicians haunt pyramids. 

All the Mayan villages with their dogs and topas and cenotes and sweet ladies who try to understand our broken espanol..

.. each one specializing in hamacas, zapatos, or guayabreras. The hamacas are my favorite. Oh Tixkokob! Oh Valladolid! Oh tacos de pavo and Xtabentun... dreaming again. Tip: this is a great book to read while traveling in Mexico.
