Viva Mexico! Viva Cancun!
Viva la Vida Exótica!
All of which means, in plain English, that our late-January week on the Yucatan Peninsula was a treat worth repeating. The only mistake we made was in not doing two weeks, if only to give our budding tans time to mature! Our all-inclusive (Translation: all the Margaritas you can drink!) stay at the Oasis Hotel in Cancun was a pure delight: great food, marvellous facilities and organisation, and of course glorious weather. Following are a few photos to tempt other would-be temporary snowbirds.

In Mexico, cars last a long time—no salt! This elegant Buick 8 was outside an equally elegant Cancun restaurant.
We Soaked Up the Atmosphere —- and the Free Drinks!
We Grabbed a Little Culture!
. . . And We Shopped!
We Ate (and Drank)!
