Stuck In La Cruz de Haunacaxtle
La Cruz is a lovely little village but enough is enough! We have been here almost a month and have almost a month left to go. Pretty soon they will want me to start paying taxes!
It just turned out this way. Peter has to be in Portland for business May 4th. It didn’t take as long to get here from the last place we were as we thought it would so we accidentally ended up being stuck here longer than we probably would choose. On the other hand, it’s been nice to get to know the community and the people a little better.
The hardest part of this cruising lifestyle is the learning curve associated with pulling into a new place. Where do we anchor? Where do we take the dinghy to get to shore? Where’s the shower? What public transportation do they offer? Where’s the lavenderia? Where’s the Mega? Where are the best street tacos? Is the water safe to drink? Only after these basic questions are answered are we free to explore the sites, play, relax or have some fun. And each place we go we have to start over answering these questions.
Having been here a while, day to day life is easier. I guess La Cruz is a pretty good place to be stuck.
