Postcard from Campeche, Mexico: Modern-Day Pirates

Following in the tradition of the infamous marauding filibusteros – including John Hawkins, Francis Drake, Henry Morgan and Laurens de Graaf – preceding them, waterbirds appear to have commandeered some of the fishing fleet in Campeche.

The cormorants and pelicans granted us safe passage along the Malecon, a pathway with ample lanes for bicyclists, runners and pedestrians skirting the bay for several miles.

Most importantly, Campeche is proving a safe harbor sheltering us from an over-abundance of political updates.
