Great newsletter and pics. Wish we were still there for some of these fun things. Hope PoMo did not get the rainstorm we did on Isla Mujeres. Loved the music festival the first weekend with very nice variety, good sound and great performers. Can't wait for Festival in 2013 for year #8.
Hasta luego. Lynn Warner
