I finally got to my hotel in Merida after traveling all day. We took the long way, from Miami to Mexico City, then to Merida, which is in the Yucatan penisula.

I am here on a journalist assignment, so it’s not all fun and games. However, I’m traveling with a fun group of people.

And before my critics get up in arms, I did get permission from my probation officer.

But when the hell did Mexico get so expensive?

I paid ten dollars for a mediocre sandwich at the airport in Mexico City. Yes, it’s an airport, but I’ve had better and cheaper sandwiches at La Guardia, not to mention MIA.

Anyway, I am paying five dollars an hour for wireless, so I am not going to elaborate or upload photos.

I’m just going to finish my Tecate and hit the town.
