Admit Two


“When you arrive in Cancún there are 100 or so grifters who try to hustle you to buy various trips to the surrounding attractions but we had already scheduled 6 days of doing nothing at the beach and a 1-day trip to Chichén Itzá. The trip takes several hours by bus with a few stops along the way to help the local economy. One such stop was in the middle of the jungle to visit a typical modern home of the local Yucatan people. I found this brief excursion to be exceedingly strange and uncomfortable since we were just a bunch total strangers walking around an elderly couple’s home. There were stray dogs lying in the middle of the dirt road and small children peering around trees to catch a glimpse of today’s busload of people.”
