Ahumado en Zih

This morning was a real eye opener for folks not accustomed to our burning season. While the other side of the bay was barely visible, it was nonetheless still visible. It can and probably will get worse. We just close our windows until the sun heats things up enough to cause the smoke to rise. Good thing the evenings are still cool, but this coolness can't last much longer. This is the 17th latitude of the tropics, after all.

While restaurants are mostly closed, fishermen are still working and people are still buying fish. We've had delicious fresh tuna probably 4 times this past week. Grateful for each and every bite, and my wife's divine cooking. I seem to recall cooking quite a bit in a past life, but I've barely been allowed in the kitchen for the past 30 years or so, yet every home-cooked meal I've had since then has been the best meal of my life each and every day. What's a po'boah to do?

Hopefully it won't be too much longer until our beaches look like this again.

Hard to tell the difference between clouds and smoke.
