While Tanya was in Belarus for school winter weather was in full swing with some snow and cold-as-hell low temperatures. The primary heater for host domiciles (flats/apartments) is the old school radiator. Which happens to be centrally controlled by the city and only gets turned on when certain temperature thresholds are reached. Many days are spent in cold homes before the government turns on the heat.
We were talking on the phone and she said that she wanted to go somewhere warm so that she can recover from the hideously cold weather she experienced while there. In discussing this we decided to go to to Cancun for a week to an all-inclusive resort. We will leave Saturday for Chicago to stay at a hotel for Park-and-Fly accommodations and then we leave Sunday for Cancun on a Funjet trip package.
We will be leaving Banania here alone . =( This is even more pointed an experience for all of us seeming as we have just said goodbye to a close friend to all of us. This is also our first time to Cancun or Mexico for that fact are we are looking forward to warm weather, sun, crystal clear blue water and all of the food and alcohol we can drink. I am also hoping to practice Yoga with the wife in the morning, exercise during the day, read a book or two, and spend a lot of time swimming in the sun. We might even go dancing, much to everyone’s chagrin.
