It took everyone about 2 minutes to be utterly annoyed, thanks to the shopkeepers...we had 2 quiet weeks, now there were people that, no matter how often you walked by, asked the same thing over and over and over again. Now i know what i like about the less touristic sposts... Honestly, i just could kick some of them. But the beach was pretty white, the sea pretty blue, and once we got there everything was alright again :).

The 5a Avenida, or 5th Avenue, is the main shopping street. As a shopping street is intended to be, one street, many stores and restaurants. We also had a massage in those days, which was nice since one of my shoulders really needed it.large_938978_13683586108774.jpg

After two days it was time to go back home. At Cancún Airport we hald 2 hours delay though there was quite a bit of waiting at the airport, but after that it was all well again.

TIP: Do NOT do buy liquids at Cancún Airport!

Some people bought bottles of rum at Cancún airport. They bought it after check in... but at London Gatwick they could not take the bottles with them. The bag wasn't sealed as it apparently was supposed to be (the receipt and everything was still in the bag). But byebye rum bottles. The only way he could take them was to put them in the suitcase and check in again. Except that we didn't have suitcases as they were labeled for Amsterdam, and you're not going to buy a suitcase for two bottles and check them in if you have less then an hour untill the flight leaves...so they had an even less pleasant trip.

I was glad to finally be home again, home sweet home and such. Except for he rain...and 20 degrees celsius difference. So now...let's think about the next big trip :D
