Warning: we’re about to do a bulk upload. Please read them all if you’re bored, or a masochist. Otherwise, you can peruse the pictures, or read the first Havana blog. That’s not a bad one.
But you can do whatever you want. Don’t let a blog tell you what to do. Live your own life.
As mentioned in the last edition, my family were slow to get to Cancún, as they missed their flight in Houston. While we spent the night in luxury, they were stuck in a Houston airport hotel, resulting in this conversation:
But they arrived safely the next morning (without their bags, which somehow got stuck in Houston too, but they did come later), exhausted and excited. The Marriott somehow thought that Rosie was a Marriott Rewards member, which clearly she’s not, so her and Matilda got an upgrade to the top floor. Not a bad view from there:
And Mat and Ro made the most of it too
A few of us went down to a convenience store to buy some snacks, and Mum bought a few beers to drink on the balcony. When we got back, Rosie realised the beers were non-alcoholic, not exactly Mum’s favourite. So we hatched a plan: I, the teetotaller, would pretend to really like the beer, and see what Mum thought. Our faces should have given it away, but Mum was extremely surprised, and didn’t notice the lack of alcohol until she’d finished a whole can herself.
We swam in the sea and in the pool, and the new arrivals had a nap. In the evening we caught the bus into town, following the recommendation of a friend. On the long, hot, crowded bus ride, Mat and Ro managed to sleep with their heads banging against the window.
The next morning, we went for a quick swim, then packed up and headed out of Mexico.
