1/01/2015 day 8 in Cancun - Thursday
I watched the sun rise. We had breakfast. Now we are on our way to the city center and on to Playa del Carmen on the R2 bus. We have Gma and the wheelchair.
We had a little hiccup when we arrived at the bus stop. Some workers tried to sell us a package to Isla de Murelos with snorkeling and lunch. They said Playa del Carmen was only good for nightlife and tried to persuade us to go elsewhere. We almost decided to stay in Cancun. Thanks to Nick and Camilla, we decided to do playa. We got on a bus, paid the driver, then switched buses because the cooling was not working. We are finally on our way to Playa del Carmen.
Once we arrived at Playa del Carmen, we watched a show where men swing from a tall pole with ropes. We split into two groups and headed to lunch. We found s nice little place that served us well, and we got fajitas, ravioli, hamburger, chicken with all the fixings. Great hot sauce. Then we shopped at various stores. Gma bought a ring and mom got some shirts for various people. We are now on the bus headed back to the city center in Cancun. Then one more bus to home.
Back at the villa, we heated the soup that Doris made for us. Delicious. The national championship for college football was to be played. We followed it on our iPads. Ohio state trailed Alabama for most the game while I followed it. Ohio ended up winning, however.
