“Travels to a Different Time” : 11March2002: Cancun, Mexico: The Hefty Juice and Omelette Lady

Delicious breakfast at buffet restaurant. There is a juice lady and an omelette lady. The juice lady makes custom smoothies with your choice of bananas, papaya, mango and various melons. The omelette lady makes custom omelettes and you put on your plate the ingredients you want and voila she prepares the omelette. Tasty Mexican eggs far better than Canadian eggs. The juice and omelette lady are hefty! There are several Mexican dishes including fajitas. Breakfast here is something to look forward to. After breakfast the “welcome briefing” mostly irrelevant if you have to been to Cancun multiple times.  Eg drink bottled water and be careful of the sun. We decided Chichen Itza by a tour. A VW Beetle is a whopping $200 USD a day! A tour for the 4 of us and lunch is $300 Canadian. Great little beach at the hotel and there is a reef a few hundred metres that calms the water somewhat but it is choppy. Get up early and claim your beach chaise! There are three pools one with a swim up bar that Andrew thinks is the best thing since sliced bread. There is a pool for those silly group activities. The third pool is for swimming. Speaking of the beach Andrew loves the kayaks and enjoys heading straight into the waves but go sideways you might get hit and flip which happened to me and Andrew so I had to “rescue him”. I think he enjoyed the danger of it all.
