Well, all you schadenfreude sufferers, we've got a stormy scoop for you. There's a (depending on who says it) tropical storm or hurricane bearing down on us, and for the rest of our time here in Mexico there's a 100% chance of thunderstorms. Here at the hotel on the coast, they've taped up the windows with giant duct tape Xs and we were given a small battery-operated light, just in case. A cab is picking us up at 5:30 in the morning and the current word is that the airport will be operating until 11am tomorrow; our flight is scheduled to leave at 8:30, so perhaps we'll get out of here. In a tiny little tin can of an airplane, flying over treacherous mountains. In a hurricane. Stay tuned!

Assuming -- as I certainly do -- that we get to Oaxaca, there will be nonstop thunderstorms until we fly home on Sunday morning (assuming we can). It's a good thing we already had so much sunny beautiful weather and saw so much, because from now on it's only going to be relaxing and eating. Boo hoo. :)
