Trip to Cancun (Day 4 of 9; Tuesday)

We woke up, order showered, healing got dressed and then went downstairs to reschedule our snorkeling tour. We had originally scheduled our snorkeling for today and went to reschedule it last night, viagra but their phone number was busy. So, seeing that the travel representative was not in yet, we left the information with a very helpful concierge person. They said they would give it to the on site travel representative when he came in today. We did this and then we went to eat at the buffet as usual. Were we hungry. Not so much. Was the food there and begging to be devoured. Yes. Who are we to refuse their request. *sigh*

Resting Part I

Water was just a wee bit cold this morning.

Water was just a wee bit cold this morning.

We went back, changed, got some drinks, and sat on the beach tanning. Eventually we made our way into the sea water and played there for a while. We just rested and enjoyed our sunning time. When lunch came Tanya get her usual sushi and I went for the flawless and oh so exciting Hamburger and French Fries combo.

Resting Part II

Rather annoyed but somewhat optimistic we left and went back to the Hotel to rest some more. We spent the rest of the afternoon sunning ourselves, swimming in the sea and the pool, drinking and eating even though we were not at all hungry. We ate at their seafood restaurant for supper. I had grouper for the first time and it was good. Tanya had clams. Towards the night time Tanya decided to do some Yoga on the beach and while she did that I sat next to her and read.

At some point we also met with the Tour Representative to reschedule the snorkeling tour for tomorrow. He was not happy that we could not make it yesterday, and tried to hide it. He made a call and changed it for tomorrow.

We were really tired from all of the eating, drinking, sun, heat and stress. We had considered going to bed early at about 20:30’ish (8:30pm), but Tanya was insistent on seeing what the resort had planned for entertainment tonight. I am so glad that she was.

THE Concert – Alejandra Milan

First I will apologize for the crappy photo. Night pictures are not so easy to take…. or maybe it is just me. =(

For us this was not just a concert, it was THE Concert. Tonight’s entertainment, Alejandra Milan, was what they labeled ‘a 4 piece acoustic group‘: lead guitar, bass guitar, keyboard, and lead singer. ‘Holy Wow do they Rock‘ and you can quote me. I can honestly say they ‘Roxors My Boxors!‘. =)

This small concert was the best part of our week in Cancun The female lead singer has as slightly edgy but controlled voice. She could project attitude if and she liked. All four of them seemed to have this amazing rapport – a connection that they knew where the other was going.

Once the lead guitarist started a song with a solo and the singer was waiting for the music to break for her to begin. He would fake the break and then keep playing the solo. Some times a person would start a key change and the rest would follow flawlessly. Her voice is strong, beautiful, and full of passion. Their distinctly soothing Spanish flavored soft rock is kindly graced upon American songs as well as traditional Mexican songs.

They were amazing and I hope to be able to see them perform again. If you are in Cancun on a Tuesday stop by the Oasis Palm Beach and check out Alejandra Milan and the group. You will not be disappointed and tell her that we sent you. =)

We were so full of positive energy and wonder following this that we could not go directly to sleep, so we sat out under a moon filled beach’s sky, drank a little, and enjoyed the energy. When we tired of that we went to bed and dreamed of snorkeling near the second largest coral reef in the world.

Birthday Fallout

I feel great and had a wonderful birthday. Here are some highlights of the 2 day flurry of fun.

Sundara Spa

My birthday was awsome. My wonderful wife arranged for us to stay at Sundara Spa for the night which always great. After one day we are exhausted from relaxing and have had enough of water. It is our second time there and it always great.

Bon Jovi

We had lunch with my mother at Houlihans and later on that night we went to the Bon Jovi concert in Madison at the Kohl Center. That was the best concert that I have seen. They are great entertainers. They played version of quiet a few songs that were slower than normal. “I’ll Be There For You”, this site “Wanted Dead of Alive”, and a few others.

He spent time shaking the hands and getting hugs from the crowd. He was mauled by a group of girls on the left side and came back for more latter on. There was so very much energy and excitement. The crowd sang a lot. They sang for 2 hours straight with no break and came back for a double encore. They had to leave the stage or they would have to come back for encore after encore becuase the crowd was not leaving unless it was clear that they were done.

My beautiful wife has taken the time to make the pictures that she took available on the internet. Beware this is a Russian site. =)

Supper with Mutual Friends

We had supper at my parents house with friend of ours at my parents house. Mom made deep fried chicken and a bunch of other stuff which is always superb. There were screw drivers, and Bailys Irish Creme being drank. We also played a lot of ping pong. Much fun was had by all.
