I think yes.
Anyway, I was in Mexico last week! Yep, despite my packing disaster, I was actually able to get onto the plane (by waking up at 4:30 (!) might I add). We arrived in 80 degree weather, went through customs and all that jazzy stuff, and then we picked up our rental car, that darn thing, honked every time we unlocked it, people looked at us like we were crazy, but that’s another story. From the airport, we drove about an hour and a half south of Cancun. When we arrived at the house, I couldn’t breathe for a second. It was literally like heaven on earth, and the thought that I got to bask in its wonderfulness for an entire week made me do some things that I probably wouldn’t do under normal circumstances. I was excited, okay? Just don’t ask.
So once we arrived and settled in, the caretaker of the house came and visited us. Her name was Flor, and she and her husband, Obdulio, live in a small shack near our house. It was smaller than my parent’s master bathroom. It made me kind of sad, thinking about how they were pretty much our servants, but they seemed so happy that it made me happy. Deep, right?

in the sand. How cute. :)
Besides the beach, we also visited Tulum, some Mayan ruins, and a cenote, which is a freshwater lake underground. I opted out of the cenote. Let me just tell you: BIGGEST MISTAKE OF MY LIFE. It keeps me up at night. The cenote we went to was like a huge, huge pool about 100 feet underground, except it was like 20 times cooler than a pool. I really do wish I swam in it.

hand-dug by the Mayans that
we swam in. It was sooo nice.
The food was life changing. There is nothing more to say. I am a different person after eating a true chile relleno.
So this post has been kind of long, and yet I still didn’t write about half the things that we did in Mexico. To sum it all up, Mexico is another amazing place, and I was so happy to be able to experience all the beautiful treasures it has to offer.
