Random Mexico Trip Thoughts



- The new Terminal D at DFW is the greatest terminal ever. Great restaurants, fancy shops, and flat screen TVs in the area where you wait for your flight.
- When you do automated check-in, it will also ask you to scan your passport.
- And despite all the horror stories about getting a passport, I got mine in three weeks with "expedited service."
- It's only a 2:10 flight to Cabo San Lucas
- You have to exit to the tarmac once you arrive and they had about 20 security forces lined up to watch you. I started sweating like that guy carrying dope in Midnight Express (and, no sir, I was not carrying anything illegal.
- All-inclusive resorts are the only way to go.
- The weather the first three days (until a brief storm blew through) was the greatest I have ever seen. No humidity is the key.
- Playing volleyball with a cross-section of all ages and both sexes is fun. Playing volleyball with a bunch of 20-somethings made me realize I had no business playing with a bunch of 20 somethings.
- There were the strangest looking fish constantly jumping out of the water. They looked like miniature penguins with wings. (That's a bad picture of one above - I had to enlarge it so much it became grainy). Those things would jump some four feet out of the water. It still don't know what they are. Edit: I think those little suckers were "bat rays."

Been to Cabo San Lucas twice, actually stayed in the that "middle section" in between, San Lucas, and San Jose Del Cabo. Loved it, loved it!!! would go again in a heart beat!!!! Have they built the new marina in San Jose? When we were there, it was planned, I wondered how it would affect the "village" atmosphere of San Jose??

I don't like those all-inclusive resorts. But, I'm the adventurous type.

You saw flying fish.

It's good that you experienced some real life, outside of blogging/twittering/internet surfing. That how you make connections and get real people to show up for your funeral. Good job.

Good grief 10:06 isn't that just a bit on the grim side?

Forgot to say: I'm glad you got to get away and I hope you had a splendid time. Do it again soon!
