    A pousada é muito tranquila. O bar encerra tarde e tem a opção de fazer fogueira na praia. Além disso, é possível fazer aulas de kitesurf.

    22. Prisoner

    A travel blog entry by mlloyd on Jul 17, 2012

    ... just verbal and written words. Jackie’s method was far more effective. Between the gestures and her Spanish, which I understood far better than that of the native speakers, I was sort of able to follow their conversation, and once I actually interjected a vocabulary word that Jackie didn’t know.

    We waited some more. I felt like a prisoner. But whose prisoner was I?

    Fernando’s? I could have walked back to town. It was only three or ...

    20. Estela, my angel

    ... up and down the beaches on an ATV with Nicholas, monitoring turtle’s nests. That sounded a lot more interesting than watching Daniel dig holes.

    Mexico City taxi drivers had nothing on Estela. She zipped, zoomed, and careened through the sparse traffic of Tecolutla as if she were a contestant in some reality-show race. Neither she nor Jackie had qualms about stating their opinions and they argued about whether the ...

    ... to buy pesos. That sounded easy enough. I’d seen signs for a bank in town.

    Back at the breakfast table, now cleared of food, Fernando said he had some work for Jackie and me: we would help them plant trees! But first, Jackie and I both needed to get back and pay for our next night’s lodging. It turned out all the turtle camp bungalows were full, and we had the option of staying in a tent for free, but I, for one, preferred a bed.

    We agreed to ...

    13. Rejection is a state of mind

    ... made a mistake telling me she was going away.

    The truth is that I wanted to believe that I was being rejected. That they were talking about me behind my back. Thinking this way hurt, a lot. Sitting on the garbage strewn beach in the shade of a thatched shelter, unable to speak the language of the people around me, I felt more alone than I’ve felt in many years. With no phone or internet access, I had no way ...

    9. My first turtle release & an unexpected welcome

    ... people lined up more or less where he wanted them to. Daniel started giving out turtles on one end of the line and Herminio on the other. Each of us received two turtles. They looked gray, probably from the sand they had been living in, and each fit comfortably in my palm. Their tiny claws scraped my hands as they tried to escape my grip. The crowd of maybe thirty people was talking excitedly, taking pictures of their turtles. I held mine ...
