Maiam is a character. Hand signals and various noises are just as much a part of his vocabulary as regular words (which may be Spanish or English at any given moment). If I learn no other spanish from him I'll never forget the word "tranquilo", which seems to be a catch-all word used to indicate that something is good/nice/easy/calm/cool/etc.
When we left the airport we headed to downtown Cancun (not the hotel/beach district) where Maiam lives, got a bite to eat and then hauled our bags into his 2 bedroom apartment where he is very graciously letting us stay for the time being
After a few hours at Daddy Rock Becky and I were ready to head back to the apartment (not Maiam, he works until around 6am). Before we caught a bus back downtown Maiam took us to see Alberto, another friend of Becky's family from years ago who happens to work in a restaurant right around the corner from Daddy Rock. (Actually, it was a restaurant that we almost ate in before going to Daddy Rock, which would have been quite a coincidence.) After some chit chat and tenative plans to have dinner there before we left town Becky and I headed back to the apartment for some much needed sleep (our flight in was a 6am flight and we had been up for about 21 hours).
Today we are heading over to Isla Mujeres again, hoping that there will be 2 vacant rooms at the hotel we stayed in before. Our friends Darran and Christie from Boston are flying down today to about 5 days here and we'd like to stay at the same hotel on Playa Norte. We'll see...
