So, I bet you are all wondering how great Acapulco is. Well........................It's not that awesome. Maybe my memory is a bit tainted because we had to pay off a cop to get out of the supposedly illegal U-turn Jesse made. To be clear, it was perfectly legal.

Okay so we stayed in a really cute hotel with a sweet woman named Julia working the front desk. We went to see the Cladavistas. These are the cliff divers of Acapulco. It was about a twenty minute show and they only dove once a piece but it was also only 35 pesos. Definitely worth it. Then we decided to sample some of the local fare. There were two food stands at the end of our alley and we tried both. The first place we got two things, a burrito (it is really 3 tacos) and some tostadas. Soooooooo delicious. Since we hadn't had enough we went to the other lady and got the quesadillas and this was delicious too. Julia watched all of this go down and told us we were going to get fat if we stayed here too long. This would be true because all of those things i mentioned were fried in oil. One of the pictures is of me on the balcony pionting to these two stands.

  1. The thing about the illegal U-turn is crazy because I got pulled over in Cozumel doing the same thing! But I actually had to go down to their jail...along with the rest of my family because obviously they weren't going to leave me with the Mexican officials! And they wanted me to stay the night in jail! Instead we paid them everything we had out of our pockets!! And no thanks to Mrs. Dulgar, my spanish sucked!! Love your updates and pics!! Hope you are loving your trip!!
