A brigade of the Civil Protection agency is waiting for the Municipal Treasury to release resources so they can travel to Ciudad Altamirano, Guerrero, with the group "Caritas" to offer humanitarian aid to victims of tropical storm Manuel. Caritas is providing the group with transportation and lodging, so the City only needs to provide a daily stipend for food. It is noted that Sept. 19 was National Civil Protection Day, with activities throughout the week. On Tuesday morning they organized a rooftop fire drill at the hotel Isla Mujeres Palace., and that afternoon there was another drill with a water rescue at the Dolphin Discovery facilities.

Barlito was featured on the Isla Mujeres MapChick Map holding a turtle in the 2012 map. After being asked to autograph one of your maps, he said, "First a restaurant & now a map, I am really famous." This is a current photo of him at one of our turtle releases. Your map is such a wonderful resource for our Island. Thanks so much for all your hard work & of course for making our son famous!

I have just joined Team Pastora. I was one of her older sister’s sponsors for three of her four years at university. Pastora’s sister Alejandra graduated a couple of years ago and is currently teaching at one of the private schools on the island. Like her sister, Pastora is studying education so she can pursuit her dream of teaching.
When Alejandra was brought into the program as our first university student her mother Doña Juana was solely supporting her family of four by selling wraps on the beach. Doña Juana still sells wraps on the beach so if you see her please purchase a wrap or two.
I feel so honored to be a part of Team Pastora and this program.This scholarship program is helping students who never dreamed they could get a university degree because completing high school was looking financially impossible. A big thank you to all of my fellow sponsors for helping to enrich the lives of the many students who have been a part of this program. Thanks to the leadership team Jana Everett Epperson, Mark Kessler and Margaret Servais Washa for keeping the program active and on track.

Pics - Alejandra holding her son and Pastora. Doña Juana selling wraps on the beach.
Daily Update: Oh is this a cutie or what, I’ll post a picture of the mom and more puppies next. There are five pups and they all look alike. They will be small to medium sized Benji-type dogs. What a treat. They still need everything but we are getting them de-wormed and fattened up first. This is exactly what my husband says is wrong with me. We could have fifty dogs and someone could bring me some puppies and I’m the happiest person in the world. I don’t think there is a cure for this. Ha Ha. They also have some skin issues – this has definitely been the spring and summer of skin issues and they are extra hard to deal with in this climate. Our main problem has been sarcoptic mange and ring worm which isn’t really a worm – it’s a fungus. If anyone has any special tricks please let me know.

Riviera Maya Photo of the Day – Mayan Wedding Symbols – What do they mean?

Sep 20
riviera maya weddings
Mayan wedding ceremonies are popular here in the Riviera Maya.  For the Maya, the ceremony is performed to bring the couple to the four directional points (north, south, east and west) to unite them as one and present them to the feminine Mother Earth and the masculine Cosmic Energy. Flowers are used in the alter to represent the four points. North is represented by red flowers, East with yellow, South with purple, and West with white. The conch shell is used to call to the gods of these four cardinal points.
