    ... be the only boy on the trip because I had like the presidential suite all to myself. Literally, I could have put every piece of clothing I own into the closet, and I still would have had tons of space. After a nice nap, we went to dinner. Before we ate, we learned some latin dancing.

    ... Even trash cans had the colorful geometric paintings on them! It wasn't as touristy or well-kept as I imagined.. but then again, we were there early, like around 10am (when we were heading out in the afternoon, we started seeing a lot of tourists).

    ... leaving for the beach in an hour or so but first we will stop off at Silvia's place to see the apartment she moved into last year. It is unusually for a women to move out if she is not married but she doesn't drive so needed to be closer to her work.
