Okie here’s My trip to Mexico so far…
We started off with Lyft (because parking at the airport is 15 bucks per night.) we were going to the Airport. But OOPS our dad thought that our pick up place was on a different avenue, and it took 15 minutes for us to realize that he wasn’t there. We walked to him and told him the info and we went to Redmond (we thought we were going to miss the flight). We took to the skies…for 30 minutes. Then we landed in Portland. We had to stay the nite in Portland, then go to Las Angeles at 6 (even though we had to wake up at 3:45) we woke up at 3:45 to realize that there was like 3-5 inches of UNPLOWED SNOW!!! we called our lyft driver and she said that she would be 30 minutes LATE!!! We were all like “We’re gonna miss the flight!!!” She got here and drove AFAP (as fast as possible (without breaking the speed limit (even though you cant drive very fast on compacted snow (ice (this is a lot of parenthesis’))))). We got there and bolted (or however fast your mom can run at top speed) to security, made it through security fairly quickly, and ran to our gate which was pretty easy because it was right next to security sigh (drama drama). When we boarded there was this plane behind us that was stuck in the snow and we were delayed 1 hour because of it (Not that it mattered because I was watching “Crazy Rich Asians” with my dad, but then I asked how long we were going to have to wait in the LAX airport…then things spiraled downhill my mom was like OMG our connection we have to leave to the sky nowww! We soon left the airport and took to the sky (just as Rachel found out that Nick Young is rich) and 2 hours later we landed at started BOLTING for gate 86B, then we looked back and realized that A. Our plane had changed gates, and B. It was the same plane we were just on. We re-boarded the plane (after a quick bacon stop) and we’re off to the 4 hour flight bringing us to Ixtapa.
Part 2: OK so then we went through to the long line to customs. The lady at the desk knew “mas pequino ingles” and we had to use the little Spanish we knew to survive customs and terms and declarations. We then took a cab to Zihatenajo (however it’s spelled) and settled down in our hotel (not for long…) then we quickly went on a walk to the BEACH!!! (I didn’t swim cuz it was like (IDK 6 o’clock (even tho the water was just fine (70 degrees or something like that (still lotz of parenthesis’))))), I ate some chicken tacos and met a CATTTTT, (so far my fav past of the trip) I fed Fred (the cat) some chicken and petted his adorable tummy!!! Then we had to go and we went to an ice cream shoppe, and I got vanilla (which wasn’t actually vanilla they misheard me for banana). Then we went back to the hotel. Sunday today was interesting…we started of at 10:30 (because we got like 0 sleep the night before) and we went to the nicer beach and paid a taxi 60 peso for the ride (he didn’t speak ingles, so I had to bring the book of spainish out) the beach was amazing!!! Good food, 60-70-80 degree water, a live Mexican band, and TAPAS (small inexpensive snacks (I got hummus and olives)). The waves were huuugggeeee, I got submerged like 7 times by them (partially my brothers fault, he was all like “NAH it’s not gonna hit us here.” But I got tumbled by the waves after he said that). We ate, drank and then got a taxi back to the hotel where I’m typing this as we speak!
