For the Cinco de Mayo week we took a trip with our friends to Punta Mita, Mexico. The Four Seasons resort there is one of the most luxurious places I’ve ever stayed. When we arrived staff greeted us with a special drink and put tequila in it if we wished. We were then taken by golf cart to the penthouse suite. This suite had an enormous living/dining room which lead to a patio complete with a view of the Pacific, a grill and our very own plunge pool.
This is the grave of Fermin Anonio Mundaca y Marecheaga who considered himself a pirate.
When visiting this grave I feel a deep sense of fascination for a couple of reasons. The first is that I had such a magical experience in Spain that visiting sites where Spaniards were active in their empire days makes history actually come alive. Here I am, here he *was supposed to be* and through different routes we have crossed paths in two different parts of the world missing each other by 185 years.
