Mexico: Days 5, 6 and 7
Posted February 16, 2007 at 04:57:45 PM by Bean in the Vacation category
Buenos Notches! (Spanish for "Bean likes nachos")

It's easy to loose track of the days when the booze is free. Day 5 started off with hydratherapy and massages for each of us. Afterwards, we headed to the lagoon and drank our share of frozen sunflowers. I honestly can't remember what we did after that.

Day 6 was also a bit of a blur as we spent the whole time at the swim-up bar enjoying the hot, hot sun. The staff tries to get people involved in activities throughout the day in and around the pool area. Around 1pm they announced that they would be having "Mexican Superbowl", which was just like a carnival game football toss. Stef was the first person, and only girl, to make it to the finals (out of 35 people only 4 made it to the final round). She was narrowly beaten out by a guy from Michigan in the last round. Afterward chatting it up with some Iowans and Michigan folks, we found that we could pour our own beers and avoid the line at the bar. Access like that made for another unintended early night.

Today is day 7 and the most productive thing we've done (other than eat, drink and talk with other vacationers) is write this blog. It's been a mostly cloudy, breezy day (80 degrees) which has given us a welcome break from the sun and intense heat.

We'll be home tomorrow night. We'll do a recap/picture blog next week.

Adios amigos!

Yep it was on. We watched Scrubs, 30 Rock, and The Office last night laying out by the pool.

30 Rock is winning me over, though I scrubs is either getting too repetitive or the writing has gone downhill. I'm leaning towards the repetitiveness.

Also, prease to exprain "Frozen Sunflower"
