One afternoon we went to the Mall "La Isla" to see the Dolphin Show, it was surprisingly nice. The Aquarium is quite small, but is well done, clean and nice. The show is almost around sunset, so it's not too hot and you can actually sit and enjoy. Plus you get to touch a ray and a shark, obviously with supervision and after washing your hands so that you don't infect the animals with bacteria etc. I was more interested in the Dolphin show than anything. It was the first time Daniel was going to see a Dolphin and I thought he would be scared, which he was in the beginning, but he loosened up afterwards and enjoyed the show. What is it about Dolphins that they just make you smile and want to swim with them?
Another day we went to XEL-HA which is great for kids. We took the all inclusive option and we were surprised by the good food they had. I had a delicious ceviche. We all took turns to do things. Me and my mom took Daniel up in the train to the top of the river. First of all it wasn't a train it was a bus that looked like a train, but all the same since Daniel was more than happy to hop on it and ride 10 times. My mom and me were planning to swim down together, but we didn't know what to do with Annika, since she had just fallen asleep. Hakan took Dani and my mom took Annika, so we parted ways, my mom took my clothes and shoes, I went to get myself the snorkel equipment, but "Surprise" when I got there I realized that I needed a deposit, so I ran to get my mom. She walks so fast that I had spent so long on line that by the time I saw her it was already almost at the beginning of the river. So I took a bike and went back up. I swam on my own down the river. Thank god I took a life jacket, since I got lost and ended up I don't know where. I tried walking instead to the meeting place, and was told by a lifeguard that it was easier to swim. So after 10 min of walking barefoot in a trail that demanded shoes , I realized they were right. So I jumped on the water again. I was about to cramp, I didn't really take my time to enjoy the trip, I just wanted to get back because I knew it was time for Annika to eat or at least to drink some liquid. Its amazing the thoughts a mother has when in a bit of trouble. jaja, I didn't think it was going to take this long for me to get there, and I was still swimming not just floating.
