Day 1 in Playa: But with some Technical Difficulties
Amigos! We've made it! We are in Playa and LOVING IT!!! It's not at all what we imagined it to be. We arrived at the Cancun airport yesterday at around 2pm. The Customs line was quick and our baggage was already waiting for us on the carousel. So far so good...until we saw that our driver (a friend of David's) was no where to be found. Needless to say, he forgot. So we took an air-conditioned shuttle van to our place of residence for the next week. It's AMAZING!! Very modern with white couches everywhere, nicely trimmed greenery, and crystal clear pools. The best part? There is NO ONE here! I think there is just one other condo in use in the building. So relaxing! We dropped our baggage and we were off to find tacos...yes! We walked along the main street (5th Ave.) and found La Parrilla. One mango margarita later, I was happy :) I had the best lobster tacos and Nelz had carne asada. It really was just as good as it sounds. Then we had to get the expected...THE GOOSE! We hit up the local Wal-Mart (yes, they actually have that here) and stocked up on Mexican beer, Goose, mixers, and breakfast items. We walked 5th Ave. some more and then cooled off at the pool. I then realized that I didn't bring the USB cable to upload pics! This morning we went to Wal-Mart (again!) to buy the cable but we are still having some technical difficulties. Nelz is going to continue to work on it later, so hopefully I can document this trip a little better. Off to Mamita's beach now! It's supposed to be something like Nikki Beach with beds spread all over the place and a DJ spinning some clubby music. Adios!
