Yea, i'm not moving until I see governments relax their qurantine policies; just planning...kinda restless though haha.

 

CDMX is still on lockdown...and it sort of feels like a completely different city, but day by day i. see more people out on the streets.

So last Friday, I decided to book a last minute impulsive flight to Puerto Escondido, Oxaca. It's one of the only small beach towns that's open at the moment. Some photos:

It's right in the middle of earthquake season, though! There was a bad one just the other day. Be careful out there.

Yikes! Are those your accommodations in the top photo? You might want to move off of the beach, at least - there could be tsunamis as well.

I would not be able to get a wink of sleep there.

I went to Phuket for a break in 2004 (I live in Bangkok). To cut a long story short, the room on the right with a truck in front of it was the room that my wife and I stayed in. Needless to say, we had quite an awakening that morning and are both extremely lucky to get to tell the tale. We were literally trapped underwater at one point.

I've no idea who took the photo, but it wasn't me. I only found it a few months ago on the internet by chance and it made the memories come flooding back (again).

No more beach front accomodation for me, unless it's high up in a tall building.

Wow! I've only ever been in a small earthquake, and that was scary enough!
