It's Better in Acapulco

Our vacation was just what the doctor ordered--sun, warmth, swimming, reading, food and unmentionables. Acapulco is not the most charming town, but the weather can't be beat. Our hotel was great; it was right on Condesa Beach:

The hotel had a pool that wound through the grounds like a river, and two adult pools, including my favourite, this gorgeous quiet infinity pool with a view of the ocean:

Our room had a lovely view as well:

And we watched the sun set from our balcony each night:

Acapulco is a party town. I think T-dot needs fewer hotdog carts, and more of these:

The seafood was great--we treated ourselves to a delish lobster dinner on our last night:

When I wasn't eating, I was reading like mad. I burned thorugh 10 books! I caught up on some old stuff I hadn't read yet, as well as some lighter stuff I don't usually read: Pretty Little Dirty, The Gum Thief, Buffalo Jump, Revolutionary Road, The Rapture, Atonement, Tempting Faith DiNapoli, Stunt, Muriella Pent, The Omnivore's Dilemma. I think my favourite was Pretty Little Dirty. It reminded me of my own adolescence so much it was scary.

Now I'm back to dreaming about the next holiday, but I don't think it will be anytime soon! Anyone working on any travel plans?

That looks awesome - but right at this moment, I was contemplating a sunny holiday and thinking that while I'd love to be there, gtting thre with two sounded like a little slice of hell. Good idea taking a last trip while you still can!

Looks like you had a great time. Sorry I haven't been round to visit you in blogland! I've just booked a trip to Cuba and am hoping it is just as awesome!
