Trip Report Day Nine-A surprise meeting


My morning walk did not disappoint. These are the sunsets that I remember from my years of stays on the island. I didn’t dare turn away from the water’s edge, in case I might miss something!

But if you didn’t already know this, Isla Mujeres is washed with vibrant colour wherever you look.

And perhaps you know this too…I love vibrant colour, especially turquoise!

I had previously visited el meraki a year earlier. They had just opened their beautiful space. Even though I didn’t have a chance to sample their fare, good friends of mine raved about it! And then, I heard that they had to close for an extended period of time and had recently reopened.

I was really looking forward to meeting Andrea from el meraki. She had created an amazing space. A funny thing happened while we were checking out the sights.

We were up on the second floor with this view to the south.

All of a sudden, I heard someone calling my name. It was my brother who had just stepped out of his apartment, across the way! He was fetching something off of his balcony. What are the chances?

Our breakfast was absolutely delicious, right down to this glass of sparkling beet juice! If you are interested in knowing more, please check out my website:

We walked home the long way so that Karen could order dresses from Hortencia’s. I was so energized by my great breakfast. that when I went home, I posted 3 restaurant features that day!

My reward for my hard work was a cocktail that I invented-brandy and mango juice over ice! My apartment didn’t have a balcony, just a walkway. But I am inclined to make the best of everything and still found a way to enjoy the space.

In all my visits to the island, I had never tasted Lobster Pizza but that night when we had dinner at Pizza Rock, I did! If you want to eat where the locals eat, check them out:

After dinner I was home in time to visit my neighbour friends for a nightcap. I started Anthony Bordain’s Kitchen Confidential that evening. Night night.
