Expecting slight cloudiness and 20% chance of light showers in Isla Mujeres
Diario Verdad reports that due to remnants of a low pressure system moving southeast from the Gulf of Mexico over the Yucantan peninsula, there may be clear to partly cloudy skies with a twenty percent chance of light showers, with winds for 25-35 km from the east/northeast with occasional gusts of 45km/hr. (The sun is still shining at 1:30 with mostly clear skies. It felt like it could rain around 11:30am, but it never did. It has been quite dry lately and the plants could use some rain...maybe tonight?)

The Cubans were detained and are identified as follows: Claudia Domínguez Mustelier, de 17 años, estudiante; Anselmo Javier Martínez Morales, de 36 años, de ocupación campesino; Félix de los Ángeles Berry, soldador de 33 años; Jovany Pelier Erez, de 37 años, quien se desempeña como carpintero y Ángel Asaharez Pavila, de 39 años, que trabajaba como soldador (Student, farm laborer, welder, unemployed carpenter,welder).

This month's edition of Canada's "Alternatives Journal" features MUSA & Jason de Cairnes, who created it. (MUSA is the underwater sculpture park offshore from Isla Mujeres) LINK
Here are excerpts from the article....
Taking art off of the white walls of a gallery offers the viewer a sense of discovery, a sense of participation and the opportunity to detach your imagination from the confines of the terrestrial world. – Jason deCaires Taylor
WHILE TRAVELING and working abroad as a diving instructor, British-Guyanese artist Jason deCaires Taylor recognized an opportunity to re-engage people with the vast, mysterious and often-forgotten aquatic underworld. He poured his deep longing to create functional art and his passion for marine conservation into founding the Grenada Underwater Sculpture Park in the West Indies in 2006.
Inspired by this achievement, the Mexican Government contacted Taylor and commissioned a more ambitious project in Cancun. Opened in 2009, the Museo Subacuático de Arte converted barren seabed into a submerged attraction featuring 450 sculptures, all designed using a pH-neutral material to promote coral growth and provide habitat for thousands of fish, lobsters and other species. The sculptures also aim to usher in a new era of tourism, one of cultural and environmental awareness, and have diverted some portion of Cancun’s tourist droves away from natural reefs, which are often damaged by anchors and inexperienced divers.
Anthropocene is a specially tailored lobster home that weighs about eight tonnes.
