We had a pretty uneventful trip to Riviera Maya in Mexico (other than the difficulty in getting up at 4 a.m. to catch the plane after some Milwaukee hotel bar shenanigans). Our resort, the Grand Sunset Princess, is spectacular.
Yesterday John, Elwood and I headed into Playa del Carmen for some exploration. We hooked up with Rick at Bodegita del Medio which is a Cuban offshoot of the place in Havana where they invented the mojito. A better one cannot be found. Their sandwiches are just as good.
There are some interesting and enterprising business combinations here.
John and Elwood were all over the "fish spa" where tiny fish exfoliate your feet. They became quite the tourist attraction but management frowned on my attempt to charge 10 pesos for photos.
I'm looking for a place where the fish can exfoliate my liver.
We've got a great group of about 175 Rockin' Apple listeners with us and everyone seems "happy," which his Rick's term for inebriated.
I am having a pretty dang good time. You know, for a "work" trip. I don't mean to rub it in but it's 86 and sunny. Sucks to be you!
