Here I am at the Akumal Ecological Center (CEA) volunteering for a month in the
Marine and Coastal Protection Program. I am on bay patrol, telling beachgoers
the rules for snorkeling to protect the turtles and coral reefs.

It’s fun! I get to go out on beautiful Akumal Bay in a kayak and monitor the
activities, tell snorkelers the rules, plus snorkel myself.

I live in a co-ed dorm with four other volunteers: two young Mexican men, a
young man from Belgium and a young woman from Colorado. Most are studying
biology and plan a career in that — but not all. One of the Mexican men wants
to run his own dive shop.

Anyhow, more later.
