Life changes in a moment. Life is a gift.
Everyone has the right to be happy. Sounds as if your Dad contributes a lot to the happiness of his family...and to you. Beautiful words Sal. On a wing and a prayer to get there...happy for you that you did so.

Life Changes in a moment.
So well said Dave. These are the biggest moments in our life - so glad my journey with him ended well. *My Dad died Tuesday July 25th. We are having an Irish Wake to celebrate him today. Thanks for the lovely sentiment.

Thinking of you
Hi Sal, Thank goodness that you are able to be with your father and your family. It must have been quite a shock to get the news and be so far away. Nice to hear that people helped you on your journey back home. I just flew in from Costa Rica last night. Hugs. Caroline

There are no words...
I'm not usually short of words, but the loss/potential loss of a parent is something I find quite ineffable. Thank you so much for sharing this not so happy 'adventure' with us, and I'm so pleased you got time with your Dad.

There Are No Words
How nice of you RENanDREW to take time to comment on my little old blog. And you are right - not all adventures are happy but so glad I am still on one...Thank you.

Sending Prayers
That has always been one of my biggest fears and concerns when travelling out of the country that someone will fall ill while I am away. My husband and I were called back from Playa in 2010 but we were not as fortunate as you and did not get the opportunity for a final goodbye when my Mother-in-law passed away. I can relate how stressful the flight and travel back to Ottawa was. We too were blessed with amazing caring people that felt compassion for our situation and helped in anyway they could, some just by extending some extra kindness. Leaving at the last minute does not give one the options of good connections and you take what you can get, so that also adds to the stress of flying home and not arriving before it's too late. It is a very emotional roller coaster ride we take down memory lane, reliving all the happy moments shared and hoping for one last time to tell them you love them...I am very happy you got that opportunity. This event in your life is something you will never forget and it was the most beautiful gift one could receive. Sending you prayers and you are in my thoughts. Take care.....

Heat & Lightning
You strike me as a lady of contrasts Sal...living in Canada which can be freezing cold between sojourns sitting on the sands in Mexico with drink in hand soaking up the sun. Snow heat & lightning...yep...lady of contrasts!

A pat down or a san
I reckon the guys in Homeland Security are trained to give you a hard time, Sal. My blogs Long Way to Patagonia...Battling Homeland Security with a necrotic leg and being bailed up on our way to SW USA asking where the bin was to put in some fruit so they used that as an excuse to accuse us of smuggling are our brushes with these brutes. Beats me why they'd need to pat you down. Maybe you exude confidence and they choose to bring you down a peg or two. Anyway feet up and enjoy your Playa!

A pat down
Dave I read about your brush with the TSA. That took it to a whole new level. Thankfully this time it went smoothly - I declare a stick of gum so I'm no threat!!! I'm starting to think Al may want to travel without me as I tend to hold him up. However he knows there's always an adventure! Cheers!

Musicians

Then there was the music
So nice to see a blog extolling the joy of music Sal...in this case in Mexico. As Travelblog's World Music Forum clearly shows, music is a big part of the planet that we embrace daily. Listening to some African blues as I write this! Dance girl dance...then dance some more...letting the music take you.

You are so right Dave, music connects us despite language or cultural barriers! I did dance and sway and move & groove! Thanks for the comment!
