  • My brother-in-law, Joe, and his partner Ze are in Mexico with us, they both live in Portugal and have traveled a long way to see the sights. We are shopping together in Playa Del Carmen.

    Joe and Ze stand behind a table over flowing with hand made Mexican toys and games, fascinated with the designs, and debating on which item to purchase.

    I snapped this photo because I adore all the colors and texture in the shop and like the way the toys are stacked and heaped in mountains of brightly colored fun.

    Also, I love the people in the photo; my family wandering the streets of Playa, laughing together while shopping.
