sometimes paradise is a love song part 5…

I love Sin Bandera’s “Suelta Mi Mano”. My ex-novio used to have this song on his playlist and it became a personal favorite of mine. The emotional chord it strikes always finds a place into my soul. I almost always cry when I hear this song. Ah amor

English translation
Let go of my hand

“No, there’s no need for me to understand it
since reason has never been useful to the heart
the heart doesn’t think

No, my love, why do you insist?
you don’t have to explain anything to me
I’ll always love your freedom
no matter how much that hurts.

Yes, I understand that you want us to talk
that sometimes you need to know how I have been
but I’m not sure if I want to know how you have been
to live like this, to keep going on like this
thinking about you

Let go of my hand, please
understand I have to go
If you can’t feel this love anymore
then there’s nothing else for me to say
Don’t say another word, please
I understand you but you have to understand me
each word deepens the pain
and a tear wants to emerge

Please, don’t stop me
In the end I always find a way to keep going and to live
even if right now I have none
No, my love, it’s not worth it
why do you want to call after me
when the one I used to be is not going to be there
this is the last scene

Yes, I understand that you want us to talk
that sometimes you need to know how I have been
but I’m not sure if I want to know how you have been
to live like this, to keep going on like this
thinking about you

Let go of my hand, please
understand I have to go
If you can’t feel this love anymore
then there’s nothing else for me to say
Don’t say another word, please
I understand you but you have to understand me
each word deepens the pain
and a tear wants to emerge

Let go of my hand, please
understand I have to go
If you can’t feel this love anymore
then there’s nothing else for me to say
Don’t say another word, please
I understand you but you have to understand me
each word deepens the pain
and a tear wants to emerge”

sometimes paradise is el faro…

Did you know that until fairly recently, this lighthouse where 10th avenue meets the beach was the tallest structure in Playa del Carmen? There was a law that prohibited any building from being taller than the height of el faro or more than 3 floors.! Of course, there were a few buildings that got away with that limitation by agreeing with the law in principle, but in reality they would increase the building by just a little during construction or count the ground floor as zero.!! jajaja

I’ve heard that the law has been updated to allow for an extra floor now. So instead of only three floors, buildings can now have four like the newly built Hotel Cacao at http://hotelcacao.com.mx/. I don’t believe Playa will turn into Cancun anytime soon, so no need to worry about skyscrapers.

El faro is in a great location next to Zenzi Beach Club and the appropriately named Residences El Faro . Not only is el faro beautiful, but I’ve also heard it has a romantic spirit. Many lovers have met at the top of the lighthouse for a passionate rendezvous.! Ah amor….

Dos Equis Halloween..!!

I have to admit…I have missed the Most Interesting Man in the World.!! And I promised everyone back in the day after we had run through all of his commercials that I would bring him back whenever possible. So he’s back for Halloween.! Strangely enough though, it’s only a radio advert, but it was so FUNNY and SO the Most Interesting Man in the World that I had to post it.!

Some of my personal favorites from the commercial – “Spirits will haunt a house just to meet him.” And, “Werewolves bring his picture to the barber.” jajajajajaja… I hope your Halloween weekend was wonderful.!! Enjoy.! Y salud.!!
