Sweet Mexico! Why can't you be more safe so that all would take advantage of your beauty and culture?? Unlike some, Ben and I throw caution to the wind, pack up and head south to the drug-lord driven country when the opportunity presents. For our 10th anniversary we took a 'Mom and Dad Only' trip to Cancun. Turns out we picked a very safe week to go with the United Nations Global Warming Conference going on. Lots of extra machine gun toting military roaming the streets, which doesn't really make me feel more safe given our experience with Mexican cops in Monterey, but the locals all assured us it's "very safe right now." Maybe.
We spent time on the beach but not as much as I would have liked. First, Ben gets bored after too long and second, it was a little colder than I would have liked. If the clouds covered the sun and a breeze picked up I was cold. I swam in the ocean only because we were at the beach and it was pretty not because I needed refreshing from the heat.
