Hecho en Mexico

Entrance to La Choza on Calle Adolfo Rosado Salas 198 (Avenue 10,) Cozumel, Quintana Roo, Mexico

Our physical work aboard Oasis of the Seas finished for the week, Michael, Eric, and I disembarked deck two’s gangway yesterday with driver Roberto, weaving through what could be any jewelry store-lined Caribbean port, and headed into town.  There was some time to kill. Our flight wasn’t until 1:37 p.m. local time, and it was still shy of 9:00 a.m.  We decided on La Choza, a restaurant a reasonable distance from the cacophony, serving the occasional tourist but also an acceptable and homemade Yucatecan breakfast with an especially delicious ingredient… wifi!  A charge both for our devices and stomachs later, we were Skyping with Michael’s momma Judy in Philly and hopping back into Roberto’s bronze minivan to get a taste of her Cozumel. Turns out she and hubby Eddie blazed a trail here many years ago and call this Western Caribbean island home two months a year. A welcomed second breakfast followed, of shrimp and octopus tortas and tacos hecho en casa, served by their favorite waiter Lalo, at their favorite haunt, Taqueria El Camaron Dorado. Here’s to mothers and exploring a place through local eyes.  View the all around brilliant morning here in pictures.
