Pork Enchilada in Mole Sauce

There are many great restaurants in Cancún Mexico. However one stands out in my memory from my last visit and I can’t wait to return. Julia Mia not only has incredible food and service but they will pick you up at your hotel and take you to the restaurant in the heart of Cancún and return you safe and sound at the end of your feast.

This was a dish from one of The Prix Fixe menus. A fried pork enchilada in Mole sauce.

Mexican Sunset

I have spent about 21 days in Cancún. It has rained about three days. So I have seen 18 fantastic sunsets. The sun sets quicker the closer you are to the tropics but you still have plenty of time to take good pictures and burn your eyes out if your not careful. We will be traveling there again next year and hope to see more unique scenes from mother nature.

Dessert at Julia Mia

Earlier this year I wrote about having dinner at Julia Mia Cancún which is an upscale authentic restaurant loved by locals. In the article I mentioned dessert but recently found this image of the table-side preparation. Can’t wait to revisit this place when we travel to Mexico next year.

Controlling Your Blood Pressure

For years I have had white coat hypertension. This is when the very sight of a Doctor or Hospital causes my blood pressure to rise. I also have real hypertension which is well controlled through diet, exercise and medicine. I have learned over the years to control my white coat hypertension by shutting my eyes and thinking of this place in Mexico. I carry this image in my brain at all times.

Beach Ride

The beaches near Tulum and shielded by a barrier reef. The Caribbean waves here are gentle and perfect for snorkeling,swimming, sand castles and when the tide is out, a beach bike ride, with a friend.

Tulum Panorama

Last year I published some images from Tulum. Tulum is the last Mayan city constructed before the Spanish invasion and conquest of Mexico. It was constructed on the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea in what is now the Mexican state of Quintana Roo.

The city was constructed along the cliffs overlooking the Caribbean and served as a port for other Mayan cities like Coba which was the de facto capital of the Mayan Empire. The ruins are fun to visit because afterwards you can swim in the mild Caribbean waters sheltered by a large reef providing gentle waves and pure white sand. It is not as large a site as Chicha Itsa but maybe more beautiful because of the sea.
