We woke up exceptionally early again, Erica coughing and spluttering due to this new invention called air con, its really bad for you you know. There is a lot to be said for lying in your own sweat.  We were out on the sunbeds by 7am reading and listening to the tunes. At about 11:30 we headed in for the breako buffef, our friends, the helpful waiters refused to bring any coffee due to the fact we hadnt tipped last time which didnt bother us anywhere near as much as it should have. We ate like fat pigs again that is all you need to know. (This followed our complimentary coffee and pastries that are served every morning in the lobby - you can be sure that we made the most of the free hospitality).

We retired back to the sun and swam and sunbathed and swam and sunbathed and had a bit of horseplay in the pool, we also watched all the hilarious posers around the pool posing for photographs and contorting themselves in to the most incredible positions (this has become a bit of a theme hasn´t it), we managed to get onto the hotel computer to find that our stick (my sister) is also now engaged, so congratulations Vic and James, we will surely celebrate when we see you next week.

By about 4pm we felt fried and frazzled and decided to take the 25km bus ride into Cancun town to try and find some proper internet access. Unfortunately we still didnt have skype but it allowed us to almost get the blog back up to date which took 3 hours each on two computers, as usual I have no idea what Lady E did as she didnt write one blog. None the less it felt good to not return home with about 10 days outstanding. Erica edit:  I have to stick up for myself here, I was uploading all the photographs which took time and as usual I had to edit every blog and try to correct all the paelling mistakes.  The internet shop was right in the middle of the famous Market 28 and we just about made it there without getting dragged to everyones stall along the way.  The favorite shout was ¨Come look, almost free¨ and ¨cheaper than K-Mart¨. 

Darkness had fallen by the time we came out of the cyber cafe and we found a street burrito stall which was fantastic and really cheap, I nearly blew my mouth apart with all the chilli, they even put it in the guacamole (Erica edit: why ruin it - we love guacamole but it does frequently remind us of the time that Andrew was guacamolied in a drive by incident - very funny to turn up at my parents house with guacamole runing down your face after having it thrown out of a moving car at you) and then got the bus back where we were joined by a childrens party with more balloons than you have ever seen in your life. We pretty much went straight to bed knackered and coughing and spluttering a little to find the complimentary cakes left on the bed by the maid (Erica edit:  Andrew you know Im expecting this at home from now on).  Erica managed to fit in a quick watch of Love Actually before she fell asleep - though the fact that we cant even turn the air con off in the room is very frustrating every morning we are beginning to feel worse - Im almost looking forward to the thought of snuggling down in bed because we are freezing and not able to afford to put the heating on because we have spent all of our money and a ton beside on our trip of a lifetime.
