As you can see by the absolute lush green landscaping...spring has arrived somewhere in the world and we had to go there to get at it! For our honeymoon 9 years ago we went to Cancun and on one of the excursions we took, we were in Del Carmen and said one day when we come back, it will be to here! It is much more private and remote, yet less Americans here....we for sure were the minority! We had a great time to say the least!
Well one day we went into town, which was absolutely lovely of all the towns we have gone to in Mexico and there have been plenty, it was very classy and clean. We had massages in a very nice spa, shopped or should I say hunted for our list of treasures..hammock, swing chair, PURE vanilla(no corn syrup crap added), Oakley sunglasses for Austin,and necklaces for boys! We did it in record time and even got a chance to relax in this open air bagel cafe that was upstairs and so cool, not literally of course but I wasn't complaining!
Why the picture of the salad, one might ask? Well not to mention the food was like eating in a fine dining restaurant for every meal....well they were fine dining restaurants but, even the buffet food was the best we have ever had...better than some cruises even. Hence the 3 pounds I added to my body!
On night we were eating at the Mexican restaurant and Steve had some potatowith his entree and he asked the waiter for some sour cream....ok the waiter came back with this salad as fast as he could and was like here you are sir, I almost lost it, I spit some food out both sides of my mouth I laughed so hard..they obviously noticed something was wrong with my lack of ability to control myself..he comes back to table and I try to say with my 4 years of high school Spanish, "crema de blanco por el potato"....oh, si si....now there are 3 of these cute little Mexicans working on getting the sour cream.....they return with a bowl of green soupish stuff maybe????? I am really having a difficult time trying NOT to embarrass any of us...but its not really working well... so at this time I think the entire staff is navigating this extraordinary request, so a busboy or some other helper thinks he knows just what we are trying to convey to them, he proudly comes out with a bowl of some creamy dressing like ranch and we are satisfied as one more episode might get me locked up somewhere. Steve is SO composed throughout this event, I can't fake it even an ounce....we have some good laughing material for the balance of our trip.
