Palm Trees, Cancun Airport – Cancun, Mexico
I made it safely and quickly to Cancun, Mexico on Saturday. My previous tropical paradise was Hawaii, which takes a good 10 hours or more to get to from Austin. A two and a half hour direct flight and another hour or so and I was sucking down Margaritas on the beach. As an added bonus, no jet lag. Cancun is in the central time zone too, just like Austin. What’s not to like.
I took the photo above at the Cancun Airport, a clean and modern airport, and more importantly it has palm trees. Nothing says vacation and relaxation to me than swaying palm trees and blue skies. I shot the photo in RAW on the Olympus E-PM2 with the 14mm lens and wide-angle adapter. I post processed it in iPhoto on the iPad Mini.
It’s Monday as I write this entry. I’m on a tour bus coming back for the ancient Mayan complex called Chichen Itza, it’s famous for a huge pyramid among a multitude of other ruins. I’ll upload this post later whenever I have time, most likely on Tuesday.
WiFi at the hotel is fair but I have to admit that I haven’t been online much. I’ve oped to spend time of the beach with the boys and suck down a few Mojitos and Margaritas. The Olympus TG-2 water proof camera has worked well except for one big scare. I’ll go into that another time.
The back up system has worked well so far, keeping up with all my shots as I back them up to the iPad Mini. I’ll try to get more reports out this week, if I feel inspired.
