On the ride back most tours have quiet time and the tour guide takes a break. In this case Colleen remained engaged and tried to keep it fun with interactive songs like YMCA. They dropped us off right in front of puerta maya.

I was seated near the back and at each stop I was the last to exit the bus. This was no different at the end. I was the last to exit. I stayed and talked to Colleen for a minute so I was totally separated from everyone else on the tour. 

 

I asked her why they don’t have a tour that starts at puerta maya. I mean there had to be 20,000 cruisers in port that day. Surely they could get more than 23 people signed up for this tour. I got the answer I expected. Carnival won’t let them on the property. But it’s not like they were on the property of the downtown port either. It seems like they could make a meeting point across the street and bring the bus in at the time of departure to pick up just as they dropped off.

As I said I was totally separated from everyone in the tour. After the long ride back I needed to use the restroom. I go take care of that and when I walk out guess who is leaned up against the wall with his back to me? Boats. I assume waiting on the wife. I walk up behind him and say “do you know where I can get a massage around here?” He turns around and busts out in laughter.

Anyway... I really enjoyed the tour. If you haven’t done it you should. I’ve been to Cozumel 9 times and and this was my first time on the other side. I’m sure I’ll go on the tour again another time. It’s not too early. Like I said I left the ship at 9:30 and made it. I would really like to not have to take that cab downtown but $10 isn’t bad. If you wanted to get out a little earlier you could check out downtown before the tour.

After the tour I was hungry. I was going to try to find some lobster on the tour but remember I had the safe issue...so I had to watch my spending. I had a beer at each stop..two at the last stop...tipped Colleen and the driver..and came back with $15.

 

i had jijis scheduled at 5:30 but I wanted to get something in me now so I grabbed a ringer

If you remember from yesterday we left late due to late arrivals. And I filmed our departure so I was late to jijis. I had a 5:30 reservation and I showed up around 6pm. 

 

The waitress said this means lucky. That’s what it means in English as well.

I didn’t really like my server. First off she gave me one of the booth/chair tables...which is great. I like to face the booth. Servers never want you facing the booth. I think it’s easier for them because the aisle chair is totally pushed in and when they walk down the aisle they can interact with you without walking around the table to face you. 

 

Usually when you say you want to sit in the chair they take that as the final answer this one didn’t. Finally I moved. I thought she was a bit rude.

I wasn’t thinking about the fact that I had that burger. I really should’ve selected a lighter appetizer than the duck. I also think I broke a rule on the sides. I always get two sides. But I see she wrote ones on the menu. I heard someone in the kitchen saying someone picked two of something when it should’ve been one. May have been talking about me. I would’ve been fine without that noodle thing. I was just trying something new. But nobody said anything. 

 

I get halfway through the duck and I start thinking..I’m not going to make it  through this meal If I eat this whole thing. The waitress seemed offended that I didn’t finish the duck. And she would not let it go. 

 

We get to the main and I got the exra spicy kung pao chicken. I may have offended the waitress with my Seinfeld Kung POW! Reference. I don’t know. I don’t think she watches much Seinfeld. I ate all of the Kung pow, most of the rice. I love piping hot steamed white rice with my chineese food. It’s the best. I only ate a couple bites of that noodle side. I had to explain myself for not finishing that as well. While I was taking a bite of the Kung POW she gets up in my face and says “you like the food? It good for you?” Really creepy.

 

I had the crepe dessert. It was really good. I had a reservation for tonight at JiJi’s  but I canceled it.

I've done the Bar Hop four times now as a solo, and it's a blast... I guess you could say I'm a Fo Fo Fo Fo Ho... You definitely should have tried the peanut butter tequila at Rastas... They also have amazing fried coconut shrimp and whole fried fish. BTW, did you check out the "Family albums" at Coconuts?... Good times...

After that Q&A I headed to brunch. If you think comedy lines are long, you should’ve seen the people lined up to get luggage tags 20 mins before they were released. I waited until after brunch and got zone 10 with no wait 10mins after the tags were released...which I believe was the 2nd or 3rd lowest number available. I came back an hour later and 14 was the lowest.

Well they were out of the tequila..unless I wanted to drink after Mrs. Boats. Yes I took a peek.
