You know what's all sorts of fun? Looking at pictures of other people's drunk coworkers! No? That's not your idea of a good use of Web space? It's also maybe not a good idea at all, libel/slander-wise? Yeah. That's what I thought. Hence, my full set of Mexico photos is hiding out elsewhere, in a slightly less public space. The abridged set I'm pretty fine with any of you seeing is over here.
I'll be the first to admit it's not a terribly exciting collection. Truly, I did essentially nothing on this trip except lay in the sun with a book during the day and have a beverage or five at night. Still, how about some highlights?
Like the liquor dispensers(!) in my room (which might have been more exciting had it been higher quality liquor or had the mini-fridge been stocked with more suitable mixers for said liquor). Still. Liquor! On tap! I would like a similar setup at both home and work, please.
And how about some towel animals? Word has it that some people on the trip got the very same creature each day, but look how ambitious my housekeeping staff member was! (I probably should have tipped him despite the hotel's instructions not to, eh?)
Please tell me I am not the only one who thinks that last one looks a wee bit vulgar. After much examination and discussion, I think I have finally decided it was supposed to be a lobster, but no one I showed this picture to thought that was obvious on first glance.
And speaking of animals, there were several around our hotel. Namely, lizards, noisy blackbirds, strange unidentified furry rodents, and monkeys. The monkeys probably would have made for the best photo opportunity, right? So of course, I got no pictures of them.
This dude isn't alive, but they were all over the place, too.
I did on occasion leave the compound... Here is some proof of that.
Why would I need to leave the hotel, though, with swim-up bars and banana hammock sitings and weird desserts at my ready disposal?
Oh yeah. And the beach, too. That was the best part, of course.
