But it wasn't our fault

We finally did it … following years of torment from our friend Catherine we flung caution to the wind and braved the frigid North Pacific for a true Canadian Polar Bear swim on New Year’s Day. Here we are enjoying the balmy waters of Taylor Bay on Gabriola Island..
That was more than a month ago and we simply never warmed up to the Canadian winter so, when the mercury flatlined at zero and the snow began to fall, we decided that enough was enough. And when we were invited to Vancouver to be interviewed by Sheryl McKay on the CBC about our new book, Slow Train to China, we thought – why stop at Vancouver?
So here we are in the balmy turquoise waters of Playa del Carmen in the Yucatan Peninsula and tomorrow we fly to Havana in Cuba… and finally we are warm. Here are our friends Keith and Helen keeping a place for us on the beautiful white sand beach of Playa...
Turn up the heating and stay tuned and, internet permitting, we will take you on an excursion around Cuba for the next couple of weeks.
Hasta luego nos amigos from sunny (and very warm) Mexico.
