Tulum Day 15: Not Getting What I Wanted, But I’ve Got What I Need

Man, I’ve been waiting on this FedEx envelope to come from my fiance in the U.S. with a charger for my e-cig, but It seems like it’s never going to come, so I’ve fully reverted to smoking gross, stinky, wrinkle-the-f-out-of-your-skin cigarettes, but I’m fine. Haha no really, at least now I am. I was working all day yesterday on one of the hotel patios that overlooked the street just so I could run down and meet the FedEx delivery man. What a waste, I could have been working on my computer on the main avenue, at least I might have had some exciting encounters instead of a strained neck. But oh well, you either resist until you shatter and freak out, or give in– so earlier today I decided to give in. And I feel much happier and relaxed. Oddly enough I had been praying for rain for the last two days, it has been so hot and I just wanted to see what rain would feel like here; and today the skies opened up. Later I was speaking with someone and they told me that it hasn’t rained her in two or three months, Ha!!

Anyways, here’s a photo of a cool new dress I bought from this lady around the corner earlier today. It was just hanging from the awning of her house with a few others and I fell in love! I’ve actually seen a lot of similar ones on the main avenida, but those shops are so touristy that the second I see them I want to run as fast as possible passed them with limited eye contact. I’m a sucker for a good salesman. So after two weeks of being here I saw this beauty and bought it for 50 pesos, I think the other ones on the street are about 200.

Lastly, another thing that I find funny and weird is the fact that while I was feeling a little lonely missing my best friend, my babe and our dog, I decided to take a photo of their photos on my nightstand; and then I discovered that I had somehow created a little buddy in the shadows to keep me company, do you see him?
