We left for Mexico on the morning of Dec 26. It was an early flight so we arrived in Cancun around noon and got to the resort just in time for lunch. The resort was a paradise of pools, palm trees, green grass and white sand. And because it was an all-included package, it meant we could eat and drink to our heart's content. We were early and our rooms weren't ready yet, so we went off to grab a bite and enjoy the sights of the site.

Then, once we were finally able to get our rooms, we switched to swimsuits and trunks and went for the pool. First order of the day: soaking in the blue skies and bright sunshine. Little did I know that this would set in motion some "parting gifts" from Minx.

That first day was generally uneventful. Except for me, because I didn't wear sunscreen, so I ended the afternoon with a slight sunburn. It was the source of much amusement among my friends, because I should know better (I have pale skin). That'll teach me...

To be continued tomorrow, for Day 2...
