Preparing for Hurricane Dean

It is Saturday 1130am here in Playa del Carmen and the entire town is preparing for Hurricane Dean. Lots of workers out on the streets and at the hotels to put hardboard at windows, strenghten loose structures etc. Some tourists (mostly the Mexicans who arrived by car) are already leaving. Latest forecast is that Dean will hit this area Monday evening so it will be a close call if our flight will leave Monday 630pm. Well, there is nothing we can do so we´ll sit it out I guess.
In other news we found a tiny gay bar and they told us there even is a gay disco that we will check out tonight.
