Finally at Isla Mujeres!


Allright! We are finally here!
After taking the cab from Guanajuato to Leon (cost 300 Pesos) we had to wait there for 4 hours until the plane left for Mexico City, cold and boring at the airport, but we managed fine! :)
Then it was off to Mexico City and we only had time to run past the McDonalds and Burger King at the airport, to Merethes regret.. :D She was hungry!
After running to catch the plane, and after a couple of hours on it, we arrive in Cancùn! But our bags did not! Everyone else got theirs, and we did not! :(
After waiting some more, we got to talk to a supervisor, and he found the bags on another plane, so we had to wait 15 minutes more for the bags to arrive.
We thought some breakfast would be nice, so we ordered 2 cheeseburgers and something to drink, and were shocked when we had to pay 290 Pesos for both.. We can tell we are not in Guanajuato anymore, this here is the tourist area! If you wanna play, you gotta pay!

Anyway.. After getting our bags (woohoow!) we took a cab from the airport (560 pesos !!!!) to Puerta Norte, where the ferry was just about to leave.. 35 pesos (cheap!) to take the ferry from Cancùn to Isla Mujeres, and it's only a 30 minute ride with the express ferry!
When we got there, we found a suitcase carrying guy who helped us with our bags so we could get to Poc-na, our hostal. I talked to the guy and asked him if he knew of any apartments around here for rent for a month or two, he said yes, and we arranged to meet him wednesday to go look for one..

Oooh.. guess what, we have wireless internet at the hostal! Sweet!
Check out the view from our room at the Hostal!

It only took us about 30 min before we ran into some friends we met in Guanajuato! We just missed Mirit, as she left Isla on monday.. too bad!

Ooh.. We thought the hostal was a little expensive, so we went out looking for another place to stay, since we are staying for a couple of months, at the first apartment we saw, they wanted 10000 Pesos/ 1000 USD / 5000,- NOK which we thought was reeeeeally expensive!
But after a little looking around we found a place where they had a nice one for only 4000 Pesos/400 USD /2000,- NOK! Sweet!
So tomorrow we are moving from Pocna!
Will post pictures of the new place as soon as I have them!

Is this some new rule? First we have to put all liquids in small plastic bags, and now it's illegal with lighters as well? Looking forward to when everybody has to go naked because of "the terrorists"

This sign was by our boarding gate.. A little late to tell us no guns or knives, no?


More to come! Keep checking in! :)
