V Mehiko – da se skregaš na smrt ali pa … :)

V bistvu je bila zgodba sledeča. 🙂 Pisalo se je leto 2000 in svet je ravno preživel tegobe milenijskih hroščev. 🙂 Življenje je bilo lepo, a nekega dne sva si vseeno rekla, da bi bilo fajn da sprobava ali je ta najina zveza res to, kar misliva da je. 🙂 In ker skupni dopust na Hrvaškem ali v Sloveniji ni bil ravno po moje okusu, se mi je zdela najboljša ideja prvo skupno potovanje – 47 dni potepanja po Mehiki. Popotniška potepanja so zagotovo najboljše variante, da spoznate partnerja tako, kot ga doma le redko kdaj in to velja tudi za najin primer. Potovanje je bilo naporno, komplikacij je bilo milo rečeno kar nekaj. Nore so bile tiste ekstremno dolge vožnje z lokalnimi avtobusi in pa tiste majhne sobice, ki niso omogočale praktično nobene intime – nikoli ne bom pozabil Wc-jev, ki so bili dostikrat kar brez vrat ali pa s stenami, visokimi le toliko, da te zakrijejo v sedečem položaju. 🙂 Ja, potovanja te dobesedno slečejo, odtrgajo ti vsako zaščito, kuliso, ki ti jo nekako uspeva nositi doma, v tvojem naravnem okolju. In če s partnerjem preživiš tistih nekaj divjih tednov, bo doma skupno življenje čista poezija. 🙂 🙂 In glede na to, da sva po 18 letih, poroki, rojstvu sina Jaka še vedno tu, skupaj, stvar očitno deluje. 🙂 🙂
In kaj lahko porečem glede Mehike? Zelo zanimiva dežela polna kontrastov. Zgodb je ogromno in v spodnjih alinejah le nekaj bolj simpatičnih:
– Isla Mujeres je bila točka, kjer sva si po napornih tednih konkretno odpočila. Otok je bil tiste dni prav simpatičen, še bolj ko nama je lastnik najine sobice predstavil njegovega soseda – bivšega nogometnega reprezentanta Jugoslavije. Uf, tista noč je bila dolga in Corone so tekle v potokih. 🙂 🙂
– Najboljši trip, ki sva ga izvedla je bil zagotovo izlet do Isla Contoy. Nora pokrajina, noro potapljanje, še posebej pa je bilo nora lokalna ribičija na barakude.
– Najbolj nori negativni izkušnji sva doživela v mestecu Uruapan in na nočni avtobusni turi po zloglasni cesti iz Puerto Escondida do Oaxace. V Uruapanu so lokalni “muchachosi” totalno demolirali sosednjo sobo in skušali polepšati tudi najino. 🙂 Tista nočna vožnja pa je bila tako ali tako zgodba zase. Že lastnik sobice nama je dobesedno zabičal, da se morava omenjene trase zaradi nočnih roparskih napadov lotiti le podnevi. A ker dnevnih busov enostavno ni bilo, je bilo treba na nočnega. Spanja je bilo bolj malo, tisti postanki sredi ničesar in čakanje na ne vem kaj pa so bili milo rečeno precej stresni. 🙂
– Coco loco – koktejl, ki ga strežejo praktično na vseh glavnih plažah Acapulca. Mešanica vodke, wiskija…, postreženega v tisti veliki buči zelenega kokosa. Stvar je okusna ni kaj. Samo ne ob 10 zjutraj. 🙂
– Puerto Escondido, takrat mestece na pacifiski obali, je pravi raj za jezdece valov. Valovi so super, morje pa je polno najrazličnejših bitij. Na tisti plaži sem tudi prvič in zadnjič do sedaj skupaj z lokalci bežal iz vode, ki je segala do pasu. Le nekaj metrov pred nami smo namreč zagledali senco nekaj metrov dolgega morskega psa – zanimivo.
– Najbolj nore fešte sva doživela na Jukatanu, med vsemi pa je zagotovo kraljevala nora zabava v mestu Merida. Mehičani se definitivno znajo zabavati. 🙂
– Kako je, ko se izgubiš v milijonskem Mexico city-ju in zatavaš v bolj zanimivo sosesko? No, nama ni bilo hudega. 🙂 Ustavili so naju policisti, naju naložili v služben avto in odpeljali na varno. 🙂
– In za konec, Mehika je bila tudi prva destinacija, kjer sem zbolel za tropsko boleznijo, ki mi je delala težave še kar nekaj let. Zanimivo pa je, ko se vrneš domov in te zaradi izgubljenih več kot 10 kilogramov ne prepozna lastna mati. 🙁

It was year 2000 and we just survived all that mess about millenium bugs. 🙂 Life was nice, but one day we decided that its time to find out if our relationship is really what we think it is. 🙂 And because a holiday in Slovenia or Croatia was not an option for me, we decided to make our first trip – wandering around Mexico for 47 days. Travel journeys like that are for sure the best way to get to know your partner in all possible ways and that was so true also in our case. The trip was exhausting and there were many complications. I still remember those extremely long journeys by local buses and those small hotel rooms that did not provide virtually any intimacy – I will never forget toilets, that were often without doors or with walls that were high only to cover you in a sitting position. 🙂 Yes, trips like this tear away any protection that you carry around in your home environment. And if you spend those few wild weeks with your new partner, a common life at home will be pure poetry. 🙂 And since we are 18 years older now, we got married, got our son Jaka and are still here together, the thing obviously works. 🙂 🙂
And what can I say about Mexico? Very interesting country full of contrasts. We have so many stories from that trip, but bellow just couple of them:
– Isla Mujeres was the place where we were relaxing after busy weeks. The island was very cute those days, even more so when our guesthouse owner presented to us his neighbor – the former football representative of our ex country -Yugoslavia. Uf, that night was long and Corona beer was running in streams. 🙂 🙂
– The best trip we did was certainly the trip to Isla Contoy. Crazy landscape, crazy diving, and unforgettable barracuda fishing nearby.
– We experienced the craziest negative experiences in the city of Uruapan and on a night bus ride on the infamous road from Puerto Escondido to Oaxaca. In Uruapan, the local “muchachos” completely demolished the neighboring room and tried to redecorate also ours 🙂 That night ride was a story for itself. The owner of the room has literally warned us not to take night bus – the route was very dangerous and there were many cases of robberies. But because the daily bus services were simply not there, it was necessary to travel at night. The journey was amazing, especially when we were stoping in the middle of nowhere and waited for – I still dont know for what. 🙂
– Coco loco – a cocktail that is served practically on all beaches in Acapulco. A mixture of vodka, wisky … served in that big green coconut. The thing is tasty and very delicious –  but I dont recommend it at 10 in the morning. 🙂
– Puerto Escondido, a small town on the Pacific coast, was a real haven for waves riders. The waves were great and the sea was full of different creatures. On that beach it was the first time and the last time that I ran out of the water with local people. When we were in waist deep water, we suddenly saw a shadow of couple of meters long shark just couple of meters infront of us. 🙂
– We had the most crazy festivities in Yucatan, and among all the places the best place to party like locals do was Merida. Mexicans definitely know hot to have fun. 🙂
– How is it when you get lost in a Mexico city and you walk in a more interesting neighborhood? Well, it was not bad at all in our case. 🙂 We were stopped by police officers, that loaded us into an official car and drove to our hotel safely. 🙂
– And in the end, Mexico was also the first destination where I got first tropical disease that bothered me for years. It was interesting when I returned home and my own mother did not recognised me because I lost more than 10 kilograms. 🙁
