  • There is a certain shop on the strip in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico that sells the most amazing lighted sea shells. The shop glows with a color that is a combination of the pinks, tans, oranges, and yellows of the seashells.

    At the back of the shop sits a lone shop master. She says she loves being touched by the aura of the seashells; that it gives her happiness.
