“Travels to a Different Time” : 26August1990: Cancun, Mexico: The Chef with a Tomato Sauce Obsession

Looks like the Mexican Hotel Shuffle has concluded which was a new room with a huge balcony and great view of the ocean. 4 huge windows and even a refrigerator. I have a feeling this is a time share unit. I have travelled this far and I simply must have an ocean view! As an added bonus you can see the pelicans flying over the ocean.

Buffet breakfast. Custom made omelettes made in front of you too. There is an abundance of fresh fruit including papaya and pineapple. I stay away from the watermelon as it not uncommon for farmers to inject water into a watermelon as when sold by weight it increases the weight. The last thing you want is Montezuma’s Revenge! Enough food and variety at the buffet to keep a hungry man happy. The hot dishes are usually in tomato sauce and onions. I don’t think Mexicans eat tomato sauce as this chef might have us believe. But as sauced up as some of these dishes are the chef knows how to cook!
