Watched a sunrise in Playa del Carmen the other day. This old (I think Caucasian) guy came by with a metal detector setup looking for stuff tourists had dropped during the day. So curious about his story.
I met a 15 year old Mexican boy who joined me to watch the sunrise and asked why I was out there alone. There was a lady all camped out and bundled up who was set up on her chair on the sand even before I arrived and was later joined by a man.
I sat on the beach front stairs of a restaurant where the staff was setting up for the day, and sometimes they'd stop to look out at the sun coming up over the water.
The Mexicans I've talked to have expressed such a deep love and appreciation for the ocean. It's so great when we don't take for granted the beauty around us, even when it's commonplace. #nofilter #sunrise
