On Sabbatical

The LumpenProf is officially on sabbatical now. My first ever. W00t! I'll be leaving soon to spend three months in Quintana Roo, Mexico. Writing. In the sun. If anyone out there has any recommendations for me about things to see, or eat, or drink in that part of the world please pass them on.

I expect to be able to blog while on sabbatical, although I'm going to lean towards research and photo blogging posts, and stay as far away from academic politics as possible. I need the break. Look for pictures of sunny, tropical things here soon!

  3. Oooh! I don't know anything about that region, but whatever you see, eat, and drink, be sure to see, eat, and drink extra for me. Best of travels!

  6. That's awesome. Definitely go to Tulum. Go to the ruins and bring a swimsuit, there's a beach right there and it's incredibly beautiful. I've got a friend going to Mexico the same time as you, you might hit it off. Email me if you want me to put you in touch.
