The weather this summer has been so wet. It is really what we can call " rainy season".

In the beginning of this year I saw the news which warned the increased hurricanes due to global warming.
Actually the water temperature in the ocean this year has been remarkably high.
I had been working in U.S. Virgin Islands for 7 years before moving to Playa del Carmen and been working in the Caribbean water. I actually noticed the warmth this year.

I went out for lunch with my Japanese friends today. One lives in Tulum and another is visiting Playa del Carmen.
You know what we do when 3 girls get together is TALKING!!!  We talked for hours!!!
But none of the restaurant staff gave us any pressure on us to leave. Very polite and pleasant. 


Big swell due to Hurricane Irma

Irma made landfall in Florida yesterday. In Cuba the day before when she was the closest to Yucatan Peninsula. 
Luckily we didn't get much impact except for unstable weather such as some heavy rain. But the beaches have been closed since yesterday. We got big wave and surge even though not much wind here. 

My favorite Italian cafe that serves Japanese snack!

I was excited when I found "Onigirazu" on the menu!!
Playa del Carmen has Italian cafe that serves Japanese snack!!


Italian? Japanese???


Yeah, the owners wife is a cute little Japanese lady that's why.
Onigirazu is rice dish similar to sushi in foreign countries ( Authentic Japanese sushi is quite different from the one that is served in different countries). 
But she doesn't use any raw fish in this Onigirazu. Veggie , chicken or Tuna salad  wrapped with rice and Nori seaweed.  Yum!
If you get tired of Tacos, this is great snack!!
