Mayan healing center and chocolate...to be continued

After putting the kayaks away, we head north this time to Aurora and her healing center where we eat an abundant and delicious lunch of fruit, fish, rice and beans, and hot corn tortillas. Tessie consults briefly with Aurora and then we head a little down the road to a cacao factory

Jelly Fish sting!

Mujasi and I are up again at the crack of dawn. We swim in the salt water pool next to the house we are staying at. Then we head over to the sea with kayaks and snorkeling paraphernalia Mujasi is not happy.

We kayak about 1.6 miles out toward a little island and find coral reefs close by. As I'm floating on the surface looking down at the amazing coral and little fishes of all sizes swimming busily in, out and around the coral community, I suddenly feel a little electric shock above my wrist, that first I ignore but as it starts burning, I look up and see a little jelly fish suspended a foot from my arm. I hightail it away from that coral reef.

It is not as bad as my fears and although I get about a 4" by 2" swath of red bumps and rash, by the next day it is gone!
