The big adventure. Day two

Fiji was fantastic. Spent the rest of our day by the pool sipping on Mai tai's. We had the wonderful Ganesh looking after us. He was a sweetheart and we are looking forward to spending time with him and his cocktail making skills. 
This is just before we left. Am a bit buzzed off those cocktails. 

Day two was the longest day of my life! 
We had the long flight from Fiji to Los Angeles. We were really lucky though as we were at the back and there were some spare seats so we got 2 seats each. So Anita and I got to have some semblance of comfort. If you do that trip then I highly recommend air Fiji. They were  awesome. 
We managed to find our way around LA airport which was pretty exciting. High fives for that achievement. Then came a tedious wait for the flight to Mexico and another 4 hours in a plane.
L.A from the air. 

Was a buzz seeing Mexico City from the air. This place is massive! 
A small portion of the city!

Arriving in Mexico City we slowly started coming unhinged. We were so exhausted
There was a huge wait for the luggage and ours was literally the last off. Then we arrived at our accommodation and couldn't track down the owner. At this stage it was 1 am. I got the taxi driver to take us to the closest hotel and got us a room. The place ended up being a dive and one of the guys was really rude. We got to our room and totally lost it. Tears all around. 
But the gods were smiling down on us and the lovely Marcia tracked us down and got us to where we were supposed to be. You could not even begin to understand our relief. She is an angel! 
So at around 2am we arrived at the apartment which is really cute. She had a little welcome gift for us and was incredibly wonderful to us. 
Our welcome gift. Sugar skulls!!!

Our tears became tears off relief. Had a chat to our families and at around 3:30 we dragged our weary butts off to bed.
