Getting away

Here is a look into my sporadic trip to Mexico with my best friend

 

  The first couple days were masked by the rain although that never stops us. This was Ambers first time out of the United States..this picture really captures her emotions of her first day in Mexico.

 The tides were high from the rain but I couldn't stop looking at how beautiful it looked

 We stopped at a little place to grab lunch. The food was amazing and full of flavor. As we left I found out that the workers made only $3 an hour

 By Thursday all the rain was finally gone. Amber wanted to experience the Caribbean ocean for the first time. We stayed at the beach all day, soaking up the sun, acting like disruptive youth in the ocean.

  There were so many coconuts it was crazy...we asked a worker if we  would  be able to have one and he ended up cutting one down for us to drink and eat.

 We decided to hit the town during the nights to experience the night life. All around were pretty lights, tourists dancing to the upbeat music, and families trying to sell what they could for money. We met these young kids in the valley on our way to a taxi. Their mom sends them out to sell bracelets.

 We decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner on the bay side of cancun. The sunset was truly perfect to watch
