We are back.

Last year we stayed in Playa del Carmen at the Real Resort, within metres of 5th Avenue.

We loved the area and this year we are in Playacar, a gated community which is actually a part of Playa del Carmen.

We are at the amazingly beautiful Royal Hideaway.

The golf course is near by and I will be on it tomorrow.

What surprised me driving in was the number of houses for sale. The recession that really hit the U.S. seems to have clearly had an overlap.

We had an exceptional meal last night in the Italian restaurant here. The lamb chops were as good as I have ever eaten.

I will report more during the week.
