El Cejas!

Sunday:
Cancun trip tomorrow! Trips to Cancun lead me and Carlos, my chauffer, to El Cejas in Mercado 28 for vuelte la vida, a seafood cocktail that includes raw oysters. The name, translated, is return to life. And no matter how rigorous the errands have been up to lunch, we bounce back with vuelte la vida!
I am sorry my trip tomorrow will not be rigorous enough, or timed right, to visit El Cejas, the seafood palace. That's The Eyebrows, named for the owners eyebrows. Maybe he should have called his place El Gigante! Because everyone who knows, knows I am not a small woman. Baggy pants and all!
See you next trip Cejas! I think Zina's Guest House has holiday renters for the holidays for whom this is a declared must do, with an eating strategy to boot! No, the strategy tomorrow is a quick stop at a store and then a quick visit to the health insurance agent. Borrrrring and not draining at all. Bah humbug. Today's strategy is more challenging: conchinita breakfast, chilpachole lunch! So many calories!

Will be on Isla between the 26th and 30th of December and would love to meet up with you...especially being a fellow journalist. By the way, my cat has totally stopped trying to jump up on the counter. Yay!
