We have found out that our friend, Emilio, owner of the new resort, Ak'bol, has been diagnosed with an aneurysm. Thank God it did not rupture and he will be having surgery in Merida. Our prayers and thoughts will be with you, Emilio. Get well soon!
I'm happier than a pig in s__t...a foot on the sand...and a Belikin in my hand!
FYI - He goes by Milio. His last name is something like Miglio and nobody calls him by his first name. He has the good wishes of many many people here on the island. He and his family are a true asset to this community. Get well my friend and come on home - we all miss you - especially your smoked fish pizza.
I just got to know Milio and Kirsten over the last couple months while I was in SP. I spent a lot of time up at Ak'bol -- they've created something very special up there. And clearly, very special people.
Wishing all the best to Milio for a speedy recovery and the whole family is in my thoughts and prayers.
If anyone has an update on his progress, please post. Thanks.
His son, Paul, emailed me today-not a lot of info -but sounds like everything is going well so far, I am very optimistic that this is going to be just fine. I think we can all agree that anyone who knows them, loves them. You just can't help it!
