    ... that Manuela organised and everyone chipped in. Out the back was a pool so we all chilled in there and listened to tunes. Steph and Matt knew Emma's brother Daniel who had worked with them at big White. The rest of her crew were Sarah, Gaz and Allen. The next day I skyped dad in the morning before he went to bed. Then down to the main beach in playa. We had some beautiful sunny days and was pretty hot. We had a look around the local markets and shops ...

    ... outside the front gate, who offered to sell me cocaine. So swings and roundabouts as I always say. Cancun was simply a more intense version of Playa Del Carmen - with pristine beaches and beautiful women. I spent the afternoon in Adrian's sweet which had its own free bar. The four of us went out that night, visiting several bars and hunting for salsa clubs. The huge clubs next to our hotels weren't particularly appealing, reminding us all of somewhere ...

    ... checked for the 925/sterling mark and handed money over - not masses but enough. I left feeling quite smug.

    For about 4 hours!

    Later on, I noticed a "stain" which, on closer inspection was the plate coming off - grrr stainless steel covered in the thinnest layer of silver ever.
