Waiting in Zihua.

After saying goodbye to the family (the American branch, it might take some time ere we see them again) we go to the Zihuatanejo airport. We have some spare time: I didn't take the early flight:) so we can comfortly drop off the car, and our luggage, so we can shop for books and souvenirs:)

Waiting is not much of a problem and the boarding starts earlier than expected.
When we are leaving the terminal building, I want to take a picture from our plane, but an official says it is not allowed. Good that I took some pictures through the windows.

The hop to Mexico city is short, and the wait for our plane to Cancun takes some more time. We have lunch in the lounge area. I kind of like McDonalds, so we had some (absolutely not) fast food.

There were to little customers to have their system working.
I have some questions and hope an official might answer them:
-How long is a burger supposed to lie before it is thrown away? (We have been there for quite a long time, one burger stayed there longer than we did - no, we haven't been sick:)
-What is the policy of civilians enter the kitchen? (O.K., a childrens party, but grown-ups?)
-How often has the door been repaired? (I would issue some stools)

Tipping in Mexico is customary, I must say that at first I had some hesitation, not that it took a lot from the vacation money, but more for the pride of the man/woman (I didn't want them to feel like beggars). But soon I learned that a tip is accepted with pride. So I tip an old cleaner (it is so good to be able to use a clean bathroom!) who obviously never gets tipped: he started crying, thanks the Lord and Lady Mary for thinking of him, here leaving me confused.

Our plane to Cancun leaves and arrives in time.
Our shuttle driver stands waiting for us, to drive us to Playa del Carmen. He is a good driver, and brings us swift and smooth to our hotel. Great roads, a pity they spoil them with those topes!

Mexicana is a good airline, but nowadays is facing many financial problems... I think it will be sold in the next months... very sad, but it used to be a good airline!
