I am always happy to leave Seattle (sorry die hard Seattle fans), even though I have grown up here. Sure, the mountains are stunning, but when do you see them? People are concerned with the environment, liberal, recycling is huge, but who ever says hello to you or smiles and means it? I was so ready to leave the life of gray skies, gray highways, cars everywhere, and no joy. I may be oversimplifying, but I couldn't wait to get to blue skies and friendly people, where music is heard everywhere and people dance anywhere, for any reason, at any time of day or night (or both). I needed human connection, sun, laughter, and the simple happiness of being alive. I was in for all of it on this trip to Mexico and Cuba.....
