Last but not least, my favorite shop in Sayulita…Evoke the Spirit! A space so beautiful it looks more like a gallery than a shop, with beautifully designed & made products to match. And if you visit the shop, please be sure to say hi to Santos, the Huichol yarn painter in residence.
A very special thank you to Evoke the Spirit’s owner & designer Brittney Borjeson, who was so welcoming and helpful during my trip! You can see more about Brittney and her shop in Domino magazine!

Fortunately for some & unfortunately for others, the world did not end today, 12/ 21/ 2012. Ancient Mayans did not actually predict an apocalypse today, but rather the end of an era. I am currently smack in the center of the supposed apocalypse, so I thought I should just go with it. This & the following two posts are a few things I have seen today, in homage of baktun.
The cemetery at Xcaret in Playa del Carmen was an unexpected place where I spent the most time. The time & creativity used on each memorial was wonderful, and it was so much more personal and heartwarming than the traditional gravestone. In addition, the crypt was beautiful, with a wall of wax made by the drips of the previous candles. Beauty in the simplest of ideas.
