“Travels to a Different Time” : 5September1989: Cancun, Mexico: Biggest Fucking Cockroaches in the World!

In Canada we have puppies but in Mexico the cockroaches are as big as puppies and step on them there is a sickening squelch as innards spray all over the place. I don’t think it is because the hotel is unclean but rather the little puppies have a home throughout Mexico like we have robins in our backyards in summer and spring! After breakfast took the public bus into town to exchange some money. Public buses here are clean and modern and far cheaper than a taxi. The town is choked by reeking diesel fumes. I purchased some tequila and Kahlua and took bus back home to a refreshing swim in the pool and up at the room the cleaning lady was moving out and the exterminator moving in. Went to nearby store for a cold beer for a cocktail on my balcony after an afternoon swim to El Pescador for more red snapper and a beer for $8.
