The airport was crowded yesterday afternoon, but I guess that's normal for Saturday. Craig noticed a line at immigration to the far left that only had three couples in it (the rest of the lines were packed), so we jumped over there and were through in a matter of minutes. The customs line was long and winding, but we moved through quickly and dodged the pesky mosquitos in the lobby who pose as Best Day. We quickly hooked up with the real Best Day and headed towards Gran Puerto about 5 minutes later. I think that's a record! We arrived at Gran Puerto and had a 15 minute wait for the 6:00 p.m. ferry.
Gran Puerto at dusk.
After a rough night of fever, aches, and pains (head and shoulders knees and toes, and don't forget the lower back), I woke up to this view out my window. Not a bad place to be sick. I finally bucked up around noon and we made a trip into El Centro for pesos at the ATM and groceries. The HSBC was out of money, so we used the one on Juarez. Along the way, we stopped at Bally Hoo for some shrimp tacos. I decorated them with the tamarindo sauce and they were excellent! I forgot the camera, so you'll have to take my word for it. By the time we got to the cab stand for the trip out to Villa La Joya, it was pouring. Craig actually tried to rent a golfcart down the road at Playa Indio's today, but he wasn't around at the time. We were really glad of that fact as we sped home in the taxi in the pouring rain.
Hopefully tomorrow, everything will be todo bien!
