#Nofilter: A Natural All Pink Lagoon In Mexico

August 11, 2016

Because Instagram tourism is apparently a real thing now and I'm not sure I want to be anymore, these are several shots of a lagoon near the fishing village of Las Coloradas, on the eastern coast of Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula. It's pink. Why is it pink? Because of all the flamingo shit in the water. Just kidding, it's a result of all the red plankton and brine shrimp. Still, feel free to tell your mom it's the flamingo shit thing, she'll believe it. Then you can bring it up at the dinner table when you're home for the holidays in a few years and tell the whole family what you told her and she'll giggle and slap you on the arm and chortle, "I believed you!" and everyone will sit back and laugh about how gullible your mom is. I'm all about the long-con.

Keep going for a bunch more shots.

Thanks to Allyson S, who's going to food-dye the pond by her house to increase local tourism.

    Wrong, I'm pretty sure the Kool-Aid man drowned on a Mexican cruise last week. Saw it in the news.

  • And now I have this random desire to donate money to boob cancer research.
