Diary:

Hurricane Isidore was in full swing this morning and had just gotten promoted to a Class 4 storm. It had started moving northwards towards Florida which was good news for us (but probably not for them). Thankfully there was no rain but the wind was a force to be reckoned with. The seas were wild. Isidore is the first hurricane to hit Playa del Carmen in 7 years; our luck rules yet again.

We went to supermarket, bank, and ate tostadas by the embarcadero for lunch. Afterwards wandered around town looking for a good Italian restaurant for dinner tonight, a laundry, good internet cafe, Scuba school for Keiko, etc. Spent an hour in an arts & crafts shop looking at Mexican string & bead arts & rugs. That was fun. (not).

The hurricane kept blowing all afternoon and into the night and we had a very simple and casual dinner at Bistro Canela before returning to our room and calling it a (stormy) night.
