Photographer's Note

The third picture from Mexico where I attended a small conference on the Island of Cozumel. The heat and humidity were exceptional and the inside of my camera steamed up every time I went outside.

The largest town on Cozumel is San Miguel de Cozumel. There is a regular fast ferry service to the mainland at Playa del Carmen. It is also a major stop for very large cruise ships. I took two trips to town from the hotel, the first one when no ships were in, and the second when there were. This picture was taken the first time when wandering the streets was delightful with no-one hassling me to buy souveniers or have a meal in their cafe. You can guess what I thought of the second trip!

Just after a cloudburst the streets were awash with water and the sun picked out the wonderful colours and reflections. The back streets reminded me of the small towns in Cuba (which isn't far away).
