Thursday, Friday and home

Thursday we got the Calica. Calica is basically a rock quarry where it's close to Xcaret, Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, etc. We had opted to go to Xcaret. I had wanted to also visit Cancun but a one way taxi ride was $60 USD. I'll keep that in mind next time. Even to PDC was $30 USD one way. To Xcaret it was only $10. There were weird road signs on the way like Iguana crossing, a sign with multiple animals on it crossing and some weird sign with railroad tracks and a bull in the middle and we have no clue what that means still.

Xcaret is beautiful. We barely had time to even see some of it but what we did see was breathtaking. Cenotes, a butterfly pavilion, the aviary, gorgeous pools, etc. The weird thing is there is a lack of handrails and some places are like a 100 foot drop with no handrail. Everything is very hard to walk on and steep. I have never walked so much in my life. It was worth it though. They had an awesome looking buffet but it was pricey and we didn't have time anyway. We had to be on the boat at 4:30 and didn't even leave till 3:30.

Friday there was a great show. It was called Ticket to Ride and was a Beatles tribute show. We had glow sticks and everything. One of the best Carnival shows I've seen and even tops the Broadway one we saw on the last trip to Mexico.

We got into Mobile in the morning and took the "easy" disembarking so we could sleep later and not have to tote our luggage out. We were going to pick up Mardi Gras beads in Alabama but they had parades that day so the tunnel was closed. Mobile has over 48 parades for Mardi Gras! Wow! We have like 4 here.

Well, that's all I can think of for now. Obviously there's a lot to tell but you can see our pictures and all on Webshots.

PS I still don't think I can pronounce Xcaret right.
