Luckily, Cory shared her pics with me this morning so you can share in the fun (and the insanity).
Before we landed in Mexico, we were given some paperwork to fill out. Notice anything strange? What the hell is a "leye"? Maybe your left eye? And what is "Nasal flux"? We weren't sure, but checked no for good measure. We certainly didn't want them putting us on the next plane back to TX!
We checked in when we arrived around lunchtime on Thursday and changed and headed straight to the pool. The weather was gorgeous and the drinks were flowing. Jodie and Steph played a never-ending game of Tequila Volleyball and we knew we were going to have fun.
This was my baked potato (that's my hand for size reference)! We laughed for 20 minutes, especially since they gave me a container of sour cream that was bigger than the baked potato itself. Way funny. Do they only have mini potatoes in Mexico? Someone please explain.
After dinner we headed to the club and singled-handedly turned it into a party. Really. We were one big Julie the Cruise Director and had every person in the bar up and dancing with us.
However..... look at my feet! I had to kick off my flip flops to really get down, and I later realized how dirty the floor was. The night ended with me washing my feet in the sink before bed.
Not nearly as bad as this guy's feet, huh? He was a golfer with a serious sock tan, and I guess he didn't apply any sunscreen the first day. His poor feet were swollen and one big blister, and of course I whipped out the camera to take a pic after telling him he needed to go to the hospital. But he seemed to be numbing the pain with alcohol.
So PSA: Don't lose anything that they give you when you enter the country! I had to wait on the Immigration office to open and sweetly ask Carlos to help me get the paperwork I needed in time to get my boarding pass and ticket. He was super-nice and didn't charge me the $45 fee since it was my first time and since "hopefully you learned a lesson." So thanks Carlos!
