Where I stayed
Hotel Sol y Luna

Flag of Mexico  , Quintana Roo,
Tuesday, December 1, 2009

The humidity hits us like a brick wall as we step off the plane. We're dressed for leaving Minnesota, and now we're here in the tropics: nauseous, overdressed, and overwhelmed.  After waiting in the horendously long line at immigration, we emerge into the cacophony of taxi drivers, hotel hawkers, bus hustlers, and a group of uniformed young man marching through the mess fully dressed for combat, automatic rifles and all.

One long bus ride through the entire hotel strip, with dazzling resorts and sparkling fountains, we find our way into the grungy heart, the real Cancun, to our eclectic, albeit slightly moldy hotel that is beautiful and gawdy and cheaper than everything else in Cancun, but still more than the $15 a night that we've budgeted for. One night, Jesse decides we'll splurge on this one night, because Reba's sick and we're both exhausted from moving out of the apartment and packing and cleaning, and everything else.

One night and then we're getting the hell out of this ridiculous city.
