Mexico Part 1. Playa del Carmen.

The plan was to go to Playa del Carmen for a couple of weeks to visit my brother Carlos and to introduce him to Pablo. Things didn’t go exactly as planned and we had to extend our vacation by a couple of weeks and take a detour to Mexico City. Even though it was unexpected, it was meant to be. My kids got to meet and build memories with some of the most important people in my life; My cousins, my aunts and uncles, people that have had a strong influence on who I am.

This is how it went…
