I'm in love again - this beautifiul country has already captivated me, all in a few hours. The language, the people, the food and the bebidas, not to mention the mariachi have all but stolen my heart. And I am already plotting my return.
We arrived in Cancun about 7pm local time but it was near 9 when we reached our hotel. A quick shower and a Mexicana recommendation for dinner and we were off. Initially we ended up in the wrong place, but a cerveza later (Bohemia) and we were on our way to La Parrilla - the sound of mariachi drawing me in. A complimentary margarita and I was enslaved to them, our dinner, the drinks and the music all bringing a tear to my eye and a tug on my heart. I must have been Mexican in a former life, and Indian in another - why do they draw me in but other cultures don't? How I am going to savour these days in this divine country.
We are downtown in a very Mex barrio, not tourista town - so for the night it will be great, and tomorrow we go to Merida. More cultura, more Mexico, me gusta mucho!
