■ PLAYA DEL CARMEN, MEXICO: There has been plenty of mundane hotel videos I could’ve filmed this month, but I’ve been holding off on the uploads for a special nature series that’s in the works.
Today however nature decided to go bananas and seeing as I found myself stuck alone at a hotel in Mexico ’s resort city of Playa Del Carmen: hotel vs. nature video it is.
The whole Yucatan peninsula have been open to international tourists for a while now and the hotel industry has seen a modest recovery. But mother nature seems to have other plans sending two hurricanes in just a couple of weeks smashing into the area.
Not knowing what to expect, and with nowhere to actually go and hide as I only first heard about it when everything started closing down and it was already upon us, I settled down on my sofa with a bottle of red to ride this one out with my fingers crossed, hoping the hotel balcony’s windows would keep the rain, winds and trees out of my room.
