Promotion of Isla Mujeres on "Fashion Tour"
Municipios | Promocionarán a Isla Mujeres en “Fashion Tour”Lanrry Parra

It is a new episode that was filmed in Isla Mujeres, and includes images of the tenth Fishing Tournament on May 17-19. Other scenes that are expected to be included are MUSA (the underwater sculpture museum), Dolphin Discovery, Garrafon Park, Punta Sur, Capt. Dulch Museum. and preparation of tikinxic (grilled fish).

Welcome to whale sharks

Isla Mujeres licensees say there have been announcements that this season surveillance would be improved to assure compliance with the regulations, but in reality the personnel of the National Marine Park and SEMARNAT rarely appear, and the Navy is always elsewhere.
The Municipal Tourism Director said what is needed is for the licensees to pool together their resources and hire a plane to identify the movements of the sharks, so the boats could be distributed at various points and avoid overcrowding.
In the days after the torrential rains, there were two whale sharks that were systematically harassed by service providers. An Isla Mujeres licensee commented, "Providers from Cancun will enclose an area with boats, after they see one or two animals, to ensure that their clients will not leave without seeing a whale shark, but the downside is that the whale sharks suffer the consequences of those ambitions, and during this season four or five have been injured by propellers. This occurs because they have guarantees of returning money to tourists who do not see whale sharks. After days of rainy weather, the waters become very murky and the animals do not feed on the surface, because their main food source, plankton, is not at the surface. The harassment is likely to occur then, when those operators find one (whale shark)." He recalled that whale sharks have been visiting the waters of the Mexican Caribbean since ancient times from Cabo (Cape) Catoche and Holbox to Isla Mujeres, although it is fairly recent that it has become a tourism activity, which began with service providers in Holbox. Originally the tourism permits were supposed to provide extra income for those in the fishing industry, but so many permits have been given out, that the presence of the whale sharks in the area could be compromised if effective monitoring is not implemented to assured that the rules are respected.

Sat & Sun June 22 & 23 : Super Full Moon (6:50, 7:50, & ~hour later nightly)
Super Moon of June: The biggest brightest moon of the year
This year the Supermoon will be up to 14% larger and 30% brighter than a typical Full Moon is. This is a result of the Moon reaching its perigree — the closest that it gets to the Earth during the course of its orbit. During perigree on June 23 the Moon will be “only” about 221,824 miles away, as compared to the 252,581 miles away that it is at its furthest distance from the Earth (apogee). Source link

Coating those rust prone screws & rivets & zippers on (otherwise rust-resistant) doors, furniture, bikes, luggage, etc is an idea that excites me...but it's not as dramatic as dumping condiments on your boss. (Here's another link)
It's easier to be aware of the more obvious signs of dehydration like thirst and dry lips, but there are other symptoms, such as headache, cramps, irritability, palpitations, dizziness, sluggishness, lightheadedness, dark urine, decreased urination or decreased sweating, and confusion. Keep some water at hand, use your hat, & plan your activities to avoid exertion in the heat of the day! It's officially summer!
