Swimming With The Sharks
I was seriously lucky when I found this Sandro swim suit a day before I had to go to Cabo San Lucas and to my delight it fit and was a fraction of the original cost. The short cut is perfect for my frame and to be blunt the in-built net is actually comfortable and… holds everything in place. Which is a lot to ask when it comes to men’s swim suits.
I took to the pool area and quickly realized someone had to deal with all the floaties! Some alive, some used to be alive, but most were just palm tree remnants. This could have turned into some classic harlequin novel with me and my luscious pecs and long flowing hair rescuing some damsel in distress… but thankfully (for her) that situation didn’t come up.
Oh and can we talk about the price of literally everything in Cabo? I fully understand that this is a tourist destination bla bla bla but why in the hell are all the shops and taxi’s and food and Viagra so overpriced??!! I threw in that last one to see if you were paying attention but yeah they sell Viagra everywhere here it’s the weirdest thing. A taxi (which is a van I’ll give them that) is a minimum of $20 even if the ride is only 5 minutes away! How is this possible. Also there is no negotiation on cabs because they will all give you the same rate. Is gas really that expensive here? DANG SON! I feel like I’m swimming with the sharks!
Food here is as much as when I go out to eat in a really nice restaurant in New York. A meal has not cost less than $100… US! Is that normal? How do the locals afford to eat here? Well with everything in US dollars I am starting to see why.
I am SO looking forward to visiting Vietnam and Thailand where the average cost in Vietnam is around $30 US for the day for two people including coffee, beer and food or an average of $8 in Thailand! Crazy! I could live like a king there… shhh… I’m dreaming.
I just so love this heat and am seriously considering spending a lot of time in those areas. Bring On The Sun!
Until then it’s fine dining in Cabo and soaking up the sun over the holidays… I’m NOT complaining.
