Since it was pretty overcast, a lot of people decided to do their own thing during the day. Some played golf, some went to Puerto Morelos and Der and I decided to explore the resort. According to his mom, who ran every morning, it’s 2km from one end of the resort to the other end. So walking this everyday definitely alleviated major weight gains during the trip! You seriously appreciate all the work everyone puts into the resort, it’s well-manicured and really clean. And Der found a friend along the way.
During our walk, we stumbled across a wooded area with a path and an entrance sign. I am not exaggerating when I tell you that it looks like a scene from a horror movie. You know, they scene where you’re wondering why anyone in their right mind would even walk in there. So of course we decided to walk in. Inside this area was a fenced yard with a miniature Chichen Itza structure….and a mannequin head beside it. I’m not lying when I say it was really creepy, especially with the head laying there. This is Der posing beside the “ruin” while holding the head, creepy huh?
That night some of us decided to eat at Gondola, the Italian restaurant in Sunrise. The food was amazing! This is us with a round of tequila to kick off the night.
Since the nightclub, Noir was open that night, we all decided to party. Der wasn’t feeling too good so he stayed in the room while some of us partied. My bridal party surprised me by throwing a mini stagette in Mexico! They gave me a shot glass necklace to wear (which was filled with too many tequila shots) and a pair of dice. I was to roll the dice and do whatever it said. The first one I rolled said “Play a kids game with a bald guy”. I got the first bald guy I found, showed the dice and he played “rock, paper, scissors” with me. His girlfriend thought it was hilarious and took tons of photos. The next one I rolled was “Play a kids game with a short guy”. Well we always make fun of Der’s best man for being below average height so I played pat-a-cake with him. After a lot more shots, we eventually forgot to play some more LOL
