After what felt like the longest line to check bags ever, we finally arrived in Cozumel! It’s hot and humid, everything Minnesota is not. Our hotel, Blue Angel Resort, is very… cozy. I got a kick out of the key (an actual key) and the locking mechanism on the door (a push button). The room is actually quite spacious. Maybe because there isn’t much in it. Like a desk or table (Nick brought in the one from the balcony). We have an adjoining room with cklahr. One door with a sliding lock on each side separates us. The view of the ocean is nice, and we are about 20 steps away from the attached, open-air restaurant. Most importantly, though, we have the free Wi-Fis.
Curtis, BRK, and I ate at the restaurant here for lunch, or whatever a four o’clock meal after a day of traveling is referred to. I enjoyed a banana daiquiri and delicious chimichanga, both of which I will be ordering again before the conclusion of this trip. The salsa was muy delicioso; very reminiscent of the ceviche in Belize. Where was Nick, you ask? He was napping. He declined an invite to eat with us, although he denies any knowledge of it. Delirious with sleep, that boy was.
After lunch, I took a nap. Nick and I ate dinner around eight. The Lahrs declined our invitation because we had to be up in 11 hours (#partypoopers). We wandered around in a straight line south and eventually came across Paprika Restaurante. We enjoyed hecho en Mexico Cokes, nachos, more ceviche-flavored salsa, and fajitas. I went with shrimp because the waiter recommended it. Best. Shrimps. Ever. I would definitely go back there, and it will probably be a good possibility because we walked for about a mile and only saw two restaurants.
Oh, and this place has the awesomest shower (which almost makes up for not being able to flush toilet paper). There’s a half-wall in the bathroom and the shower is on one side. Water gets all over the floor, but it kind of has this cool feeling of showering in an open room. I’ll post some pictures later on.
Speaking of pictures, I’m going to feel like a pro as I juggle three cameras on this trip. I’ve got my Rebel for srsbsns pics, my PowerShot for diving and quick shots, and my iPhone for posting on Instagram, Tumblr, and teasing people on the Twitter (thank gods for Wi-Fi).
I’ve created an album here where I’ll be posting all my pics. Bookmark it now for easy reference later.
