Where I stayed
We checked in for our flight and after trying to sneak through twice without paying the airport tax Lady E deemed it impossible which frustratingly meant we had to go and use an ATM due to the fact we had given all our money away (and it was quite a lot certainly by Cuban standards).
We pulled up on a pew at a freezing cold airport and waited for another old Soviet banger to come tumbling out of the sky
We landed back in Cancun which you probably have to say felt a bit like Thailand after returning from Burma, it is so rich and modern and heaving with American tourists. We were negotiating with the collectivos and when one asked if we were on our honeymoon I instantly responded "yes" (looking for a reduction) whilst at exactly the same time Erica responded "No" neither us nor the collectivo guy could stop laughing for about 30 seconds. We ended up paying up as opposed to the long bus route and set off in search of our accommodation. This was the third time I think Erica had booked our accommodation, when we got dropped off it turned out to be a 5* hotel built in a contemporary style...
After a prolonged check in we found our king sized bed with sea and pool view (this upgrade was free due to the messing about and my short temper due to last nights drinking). We found some beds near the pool, an infinity pool looking out over the Caribbean sea no less, and lay and did nothing. When we lost the sun at about 3pm we went for a lie down and watched some tv which about 4 channels were in English. Hey hey. The hotel has a few restaurants including a sushi bar which we are trying not to go to as it is much more expensive than the other restaurants. We had dinner in the International one and plumped for a started each of shrimp tacos with the free water - well all we really wanted was a pool and a nice comfortable room to relax in before we go home and cant afford another holiday for the next decade! We even got a complimentary champagne at the "sunset bar" where you can watch the sunset with a glass of bubbly and free cakes - we even got cakes in our room to welcome us!!!
The blogs will get quite a bit shorter now as we are planning to do nothing for a few days, I'm trying to smash out about 8 days of catch up and I´m getting bored and want to go and buy a bottle of tequila and get drunk.
