Ivan, Lil Dave and I had to wake up early at 7:20 am on November 22, 2011. We checked in at Gatwick. Then, we grabbed food at Marks and Spencer.
The plane took off at 9:30 am. Ivan and I had lunch on the plane. I had BBQ chicken with no vegetarian option. Ivan had salmon with beans and cous cous – Good thing he grabbed food at Marks and Spencer. We watched Beavis and Butthead and part of the movie Friends with Benefits on the plane. I was really tired and fell asleep for 2 hours. Ivan continued watching shows on the laptop. Lil Dave took a long monkey nap.
We landed at 3:30 pm in Cancun, Mexico. Immigration was really easy. We had to wait a few minutes while our bags arrived. We had to put our luggage through an X-ray machine on the way out which I thought was weird.
It was cloudy and humid and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
Ivan had set up a shuttle through Best Day Travel. We boarded the bus. We were lucky to be the first off the shuttle. We arrived at 4:30 pm at Omni Cancun hotel. We got two double beds since there weren’t any rooms with king beds available. We had a nice view of the lagoon on the 17th floor.
We all used the internet which was really buggy.
We took a look around the resort – it’s a just a generic hotel, nothing special. Then, we got ready to head out.
We got a bus which is 1 peso per person to the center. Our stop was at Senor Frog’s. Ivan saw a place on the internet called The Surfin’ Burrito. We stopped at the burrito place. Lil Dave got a banana burrito. Ivan and I shared a delicious fish burrito and a fish and shrimp ceviche. The food can take awhile to arrive though since it’s usually busy.
We walked around and checked out brochures for tours.
It started showering. Ivan thought we should head back. So, we got a bus back at 8:30 pm.
We got back to the hotel and it started raining even harder.
Ivan and I watched tv. I worked on the blog while Ivan used the internet. Shortly after, we decided to go to bed.
