Kathy and I are 13 days from flying into Cancun. So much to do :)

The first 5 nights we will be on the Caribbean side and then 8 nights in Merida, arriving on the 9th. We've rented a house this time, not far from MEL, I am told.

We are looking forward to seeing those of you we have already met again, and to meeting new folks.

Back to the grindstone now. I'll need to write a blog this weekend, between walking for research, taking stuff to Goodwill, making a reservation at the airport Holiday Inn where we can part our car for free, and other trip prep things.

Rainie,
Since we're all at different places as bloggers for such a small group it would be hard to divide up by experience level. We tried to have the topics be relevant to everyone regardless of length of time blogging. This way we can learn from one another. That is the whole idea of having the workshops instead of just doing social stuff. The social stuff is equally important.
We tried to have a balance between learning and social time, so we have 3 organized social things and 3 (maybe 4) workshops with the last one being about the mechanics of blogging divided into 2 groups by blogging platform.
regards,
Theresa
