There are several postcards about keys on Scotttreks.

There is one postcard on a Montevideo door lock and three keys that look the same. There is one postcard on a break and enter in Belize when a renter doesn’t leave a key and a new tenant is soon to be on the premises. There is a postcard on a key found in an Albuquerque golf course parking lot, the key to the box of forgotten dreams. Now, there is this postcard on a bent key to room number 10 at the Yoga Shala in Tulum, Mexico.

At the beach, you don’t have pockets. This key and its colorful leather chain fit comfortably around my neck. 

The odd thing about this key is the bend between the head and neck.

It took a lot of not paying attention to do this kind of damage.

Where the bend comes from is a story known to Angelique in the Yoga Shala office. She reminds me that she has another key to my room if this one fails to work.

In Mexico, there is no need to fix anything if it isn’t broken.

In old days, we didn’t need a key because we didn’t have to lock our doors.

Now, we need two locks, and a security system to protect our stuff when we nervously go on vacation.
