Up and at it early this morning, we were waiting outside of the hotel grounds for the local bus known as a collectivo at just after 09:00hrs. Only 40 peso (£1.70) to Playa del Carmen which is approximately 21 miles north of where we are staying. The bus to about 30 mins and made a couple of shots to pick the locals up. We were the only tourists on the bus.
Playa re Carmen looks like any other tourist shopping street, sure good food and some shops selling tat! We managed to get some Christmas gifts, a pair of Oakley’s for me (I’ve been looking for years but never had the courage to buy a pair but decided why not I’ve worked hard this year). Michele also tested herself to the new iPhone X, cheaper than the UK and with the bonus we should be able to claim the tax back .
We are out too in Playa del Carmen £20 for lunch and drinks.
Back to the hotel in a taxi for 400 peso (£20)
Three hours sunbathing for Michele while I read and dozed on the Balinese bed
Tonight’s restaurant was the French, Michele had ham soup to start but didn’t like it as it was COLD! I had lobster bisque. We both had Ratatouille before the main course. Michele had rack of lamb and I kept with the lobster theme and had lobster thermidor. First time reading lobster and I’m impressed.
Tomorrow Michele will sun baths and I’ll watch Chelsea v United 11:00 here 16:00 at home!
