We're here!

Princess and I arrived in Cancun yesterday afternoon. We were exhausted after waking up at 4:30am to catch the 5:30 shuttle to the airport. It was, of course, amazing to see the Lizard King again. I love how we fall right back into "us" again.

The view from the condo. Isn't it beautiful?!

We went shopping for supplies today. Besides food for the next couple of weeks, I wanted to buy some baking soda for doing laundry. After finding the Spanish words for baking soda in the dictionary, slaughtering the pronunciation and finally showing the store employee the dictionary, she led me to the location. I'm guessing they don't use baking soda the way I do. It's my all purpose cleaner, my laundry booster, I use it to exfoliate, and so many other uses. I buy the giant Costco bag. Costco Cancun didn't have it. I bought enough for maybe 2 loads of laundry.  

LK cooked dinner tonight. Shrimp & Chorizo with peppers, onions and cilantro with sour cream (which was different than US sour cream), salsa & steamed corn tortillas on the side. It was so good!! Yes Freckle, white cabinets like yours, but these ones are shiny white! Ooh! I know you're jealous. ;)

We finished the day with a rousing game of "Guess What I Am!", one of our favorites.

I wonder what tomorrow will bring...
