Located in the Ik Kil Archaeological Park, Ik Kil Cenote is a popular swimming hole that is open to the public. The water is 26m below ground level, and features a carved stairway leading down to swimming platforms. Used primarily for relaxation and religious ritual, the area is sacred to Mayans, with ancient Mayan ruins nearby as well.
5 things you’ll find in my bag: a Moleskine notebook, a shitload of pens, red lipstick, my phone, wallet.
5 things you’ll find in my bedroom: Stacks of books all over the floor, a Gene Belcher Funko Pop doll, a painting I made, my alarm clock, a vintage Eames Aluminum Group chair.
5 things I’ve always wanted to do: skydive, travel to Chiapas alone, travel to Cairo with my son, take an Indian cooking class, swim in a Mexican cenote.
5 things that make me happy: the written word, music (I can’t live without music), coffee, strength training, and helping other writers.
5 things I’m currently into: growing as a person, boxing (still), Italian (the language), gin, and reaching out to old friends to start reconnecting.
5 things on my to do list: get all my taxes in order, continue with my Italian lessons, finish all my WIPs, wash my car (I mean, really!) and develop several routines for the TRX class I teach. I’m woefully behind.
