It is That Time of Year Again

Well it is that time of year again, hippie season in Mahahual.  Every spring, about this time of year, after the snows start to melt up north, hippies from Europe and the USA start showing up in Mahahual.

Some of the hippies perform music, juggle, and other things to try to make money to survive.  They show up every year about this time, and leave before it gets too hot.

Another thing I find interesting is, most of the “snow bird” expats are leaving, or have already left to go back up north.  It seems the hippies show up as soon as the “snow birds” head back up north, I wonder if there is a correlation there.

Also Semana Santa starts this weekend, so we will be having college students from all over Mexico here next week on spring break.  So the next two weeks should be very interesting here in Mahahual, stay tuned.
