Today in Cozumel, Mexico I met William. He was cutting coconuts, so I went over to talk to him, and after he finished cutting he sat and shared his story and some fresh coconut with me. A great moment I will remember.
“I’ve been here for over forty years and I love everything about it, what’s not to love. I am retired now, but before I worked as a waiter for 27 years. Working with people was my favorite part of the job, I got to know people from all over the world. I speak Spanish, English, French, Italian, and Maya. I love it because in other areas people are always in a hurry but here I can enjoy the slow pace.”
