Qiero dos boletos, paro no tengo pesos

A little chat with the bus driver and our remaining $49 in U.S. Currency managed to get us on the bus to Cancun. The bus ride is almost seven hours, so we have a lot of time to kill before we get there.

We skipped breakfast this morning, since after the hotel bill and the tickets for the bus, we have 50 pesos and some pocket change left. We went shopping yesterday at a small market that seemed to be some sort of minature Costco. They didn't carry many products, but everything they had, they had a lot of. We picked up a one-liter Coke and a king-size box of assorted cookies, which are substituting for food until we get to Cancun.

I may never look at a cookie quite the same way again.
