We had been completly blown away when Brenda e-mailed us and said that Dwight had offered for us to stay at his place whilst we were in Mex City. The guys never met us and we only met Brenda for 2 days! wow.
We were quite expecting to leave when Dwight went to work and return only when he was back, but we were given a key and a mobile to contact them if we had any problems and told to relax. wow again!
We had a really good few days with Brenda and Dwight, we went out for a meal to a lovely French restaurant, the service was spot on, silver service and the best of everything. this would´ve cost us over 100 pound in England, it cost us 50 pounds. We thought we could splash out a little. Then Brenda had arranged a birthday party for her friend at the house and we were invited, it was a little strange at first with everyone speaking mainly Spanish, but after a few beers the dancing and singing started and it didn´t matter. We had a really good time.
We had a slight problem cashing our travellers cheques at he HSBC, and after several attempts we went to a Scotabank where they sort it out! Again, many thanks to B & D for translating and driving us around.
On our last day, B and D dropped us off at the tour bus and we went around Mexico City. They collected us again afterwards. We had told B& D that we wanted to take them out for a meal to say thank you for everything they´d done for us. We went to a nice seafood place and ate loads! However when the bill came they grabbed it and refused to let us pay. (naughty!) so now they have to come visit us in New Zealand or Australia so we can look after them.
We booked the trip to Cancun and the GAP tour through Central America whilst here.
