Needing A Huge Favor

As sometimes happens, one of our laptops has bit the dust. Don't ask. It's just disgusting how quickly laptops deteriote here with the salt.

We could buy a new one in Cancun but it would have a Spanish operating system and I just could not deal with that.

So, I need a favor. Is somebody coming to Isla, Cancun or Playa del Carmen within the next few weeks that would be willing to mule a new laptop down to me? I would order it online to be sent to your house.

If you can do this, please send me an email at islagringo@yahoo.com and we can swap details.

Here's hoping!

Wish we were the ones heading your way - but we are enjoying the weather here in Puerto Escondido (NOT too far from Huatulco - hint, hint).

I had a strange glitch on my laptop here this morning - thinking - yikes is this a salt air anomaly? It corrected itself with a reboot - we will see...

The price paid for sea air and fabulous sunsets huh.

Beware, Not just the salt my friend but also the humidity in the 90s. Invest in one of those ugly(but effictive) clear covers this time. Good Luck and hope to see you on Isla...

Well, darn! If it had died a few days later, we could have done it! Just got home last night. Hope you find a volunteer!

Not much notice but I'm leaving on Wednesday (1/26) to head down to Isla. Email me at hmboysen@msn.com if you can get one to me in that short time and I'll bring it along. Will be staying at the Vistalmar.

Didn't even have time to read blogs that week, and at the time, I had no intention of coming that way. As it happened, I booked a flight the following Wednesday, booked the hotel Thursday and was in Playa in time Sunday to catch the final quarter of the Packers' playoff win!
