left the house at 3:30 am in two cabs to get us to the airport in time for our departure…

the flight was uneventful and the four hours went by quickly… a few of us slept and others read, watched movies and snacked

it was fun to watch the sun rise on one side of the plane while it was still dark on the other…

saw some cool mountains as we flew over… no idea where they were…

and, eventually we saw the sun rising on our side of the plane…

arrived at the airport and went through customs without a problem… the palm trees are such a welcome sight once exiting the building…

the system at the hotel left a little to be desired… had to stand in line on three separate occasions before eventually getting to our rooms…

but while we were waiting we found a cafe with free wifi and a fishing connection…

we had a shrimp party there… apparently, Mazatlan is known for its shrimp…

my favourite was the coconut crusted ones which were delicious… 

and then spent the afternoon at the pool… this was the view as we headed in to eat dinner…

we are going to pay for a week of wifi so I can post this and the next six blogs without searching for free spots all the time, lol…

now to bed, been a long day and we have an early start tomorrow… which also happens to be my girl’s birthday;-)…
