That's how I would describe my trip to Mexico my friends! It was bueno!! Muy bueno!! I am still speaking spanish back home, in fact the other day I was paying for something and I said 'gracious'...haha! I actually did take grade 11 Spanish, and I remember I got a very bad grade in the first semster, probably due to ditching school, but did a lot better the second semester. I can't remember more than a few phrases and half a dozen words since that was a lifetime ago...almost!
(this shot taken from the aeroplano....duh!)
We visited my sister Cathy first in Regina, Saskatchewan...the prairies if you didn't know....and these photos show how remarkably flat it really is there) I must tell you though, being the land of big skies, they have awesome sunrises and sunsets, and the clouds look so surreal sometimes.

Our trip was amazing though, despite getting ill one evening, and a bad burn on my arms and legs while on a boat....after snorkeling at a reef. I did also get to ride a horse on the beach, which was lovely but hot, we chose to go riding at the worst time, 1 pm in the blazing sun near water!!! Dumb dumb dumb. No hat and no boots either...so i couldn't get the horse to go faster. Although he did start to gallop a little and i freaked cos I thought I might go flying head first into the sand. There were about oh, a million or so spring break college students on the beach, half drunk and yelling stuff like 'Ondelaaaay, Ondelaaaay (sp?). On the boat cruise we took, we were surronded by the rambunctious randy college kids, who were getting wasted (booze cruise) and screaming whenever they saw a whale....scaring the poor thing away!! I was amazed at the sight of the whale, spraying water like a fountain, and glistening in the sun....a wonderous sight!
Lets see, we also saw a historic town, Todos Santos, which featured a lot of colonial architecture and the famous Hotel California. I had no idea it was IN Mexico! It was a lovely place....such a lovely place..(sorry, had to sneak that line in from the Eagles song.
So if you would like to see some photos of the trip, I invite you to click on this link here:
