Did you know that Club Med Yucatan Cancun was the first one here? I mean it was the first resort built along this stretch of beach along the Caribbean Sea.
It is a question no father is prepared to hear, but today my daughter asked it. From her innocent seven year old mouth came the following phrase: “Can the front desk make the tv shows in English?” I truly was not prepared for the day my daughter would ask this. It is true, she doesn’t understand why the television at a restaurant has to show commercials. She even makes the fast forward button pushing motion with her thumb the minute a commercial comes on.
It is almost midnight on the Yucatan Peninsula and we are sopping wet down to our underwear. My daughter and I started our day before the break of dawn and we are tuckered out.
We arrived into Cancun 30 minutes early and after clearing customs. We ended up having all of our belongings rifled through as we were randomly selected for a more thorough search. After you go through immigration, you collect your luggage and all of it goes through a large x-ray. They as you hand in your customs declaration form, you press a button which turns a light green, meaning have a nice stay in Mexico; or it turns red as ours did and you get approached by someone wearing gloves who asks that you grab your ankl…wait sorry. Needless to say, my daughter did not appreciate having all our stuff gone through.
