Speaking of travel plans... in just over a month, Gabrielle and I will be making our biennial trip to Mexico. Two years ago we had a dreamy time in the peaceful village of San Miguel de Allende and this year we're headed to the Mexican Riviera, Copal to be precise, for a little R&R. No electricity (I'll be reading by candlelight), a sea view pod, and yoga classes every day... I've never taken a vacation quite like this.
Then, for something completely different, in April the inamorato and I are planning to try and visit Prague, Budapest, and Vienna all in the space of one week. Send your recommendations my way if you please--the more gilded, decayed, and/or haunted the better!
