Moving Beyond My Fear in Mexico

Yall know I had a one-way ticket to Mexico in April. Many of yall were afraid for me.
California Peeps, me and my girl Fabiola Hidalgo are about to take our friendship to another level.😄

Many of you have been asking me about my world in Mexico and how I get around. Well, we walk a lot in Centro downtown Playa Del Carmen being close to the beach and all the tourist activities. We are a few blocks from the Cozumel Pier as well. (I actually lost 10 pounds! )

Meet Fabiola

I met Fabiola in Playa Del Carmen and we have become sister-friends. I needed a co-pilot I could build a relationship with and trust. She is fair and kind. She shares her contacts and resources.

She understands the Black experience in the United States and we share cultural perspectives openly. I am told I will be getting Spanish lessons on this trip.😃

Once she even called me when she saw me on FB live walking outside the morning after Hurricane Marie hit and told me to get back inside. She did not want any trees or loose branches to fall on me. I laughed so hard, she was watching out for the old lady!😄

Can you think of a better friend to go on a long journey?
