Is this opposite day?? We love Acapulco!

Soooo…. I don’t know if it’s been opposite day or week or what, but despite what everyone had told us, we loved Acapulco. From the cliff divers to the taxi drivers to the snorkelling to the coffee to the high-tech race boats…. Acapulco was a delight for the senses.

(How corny is that, right? “A delight for the senses“? But seriously, it was a beautiful, tasty, awe-inspiring, wonderful stop)…

What's going on with THIS guy??…but they always worked it out!

Mmmm oysters from the cliff diversAlso tasty? The coffee! “Cafe Wadi” has been in business since 1924, and had the best selection of beans we’d seen so far…

Acapulco coffee is the BESTJust because it falls in the category of “what life is *really* like without refrigeration”, I like this pic. We wanted to buy block ice (since it lasts so much better than cubed) so we went to the ice factory… but they didn’t have any bags, and the cabby was not too happy at the prospect of a pool of water in his trunk, so we ran across some death-defying traffic to find a little party store that happily sold us some enormous bags to hold our ice πŸ™‚
Life without refrigeration on a sailboat is always... fun
I’m not the best at taking underwater pics, but we loved the snorkelling in Acapulco…

I don’t know if needlefish pose any danger at all to human beings… but I was afraid anyways πŸ™‚

We were in awe of their crazy high-tech sails, and had an amusing afternoon guessing how many Brio’s we could buy for the price of one of their Kevlar sails….

But it was a Sunday, and Sundays are free-entry day at the museum, and Jon really wanted to see the Fort at the museum, and I love free stuff, so…. off to the museum we went πŸ™‚
