Executives for Greenpeace Mexico have recently announced the arrival of the “Rainbow Warrior” next month.  After spending time in Cozumel, the environmentally “green” ship will sail up to Vera Cruz, where she will also seek to raise environmental awareness.  The nearly 60 meter ship is primarily wind-powered and carries a state-of-the-art satellite communication and it’s own mini-water treatment plant.  For more information on the ship, check out Greenpeace’s webpage.

This is actually the third “Rainbow Warrior” that Greenpeace has sailed.  The first was damaged in a bombing in 1985, after campaigning against nuclear testing in the Pacific, and helping put an end to destructive fishing operations.  The last time the “Rainbow Warrior” called  into Cozumel in 2010.

An ex-Connecticut Yankee who has called Cozumel home for over 15 years, Laura ran away to the Caribbean years ago, bumped around the islands teaching SCUBA diving, lost some time in Jamaica, and finally stopped in Cozumel for a 2 week vacation that hasn’t ended yet. With a degree in Journalism from a fancy private college she convinced her parents to pay for, Laura writes, edits, and creates the weekly Cozumel 4 You news, promotional articles about the island, and her very own blog, which she finds hilarious. Her long suffering husband, the Fabster, has long since resigned himself to having zero private life, as he’s been involved in her various schemes and plots since his arrival. Proud parents to a variety of rescue dogs and cats, Laura continues to be the bane of her traditional Mexican mother-in-law’s existence, as she muses her way through life in the Mexican Caribbean.
