The Tale Of
The Newsboy

Once upon a time there was a little newsboy who was very, very poor and he only sold old newspapers because he didn't have enough money for new ones.

People didn't by his newspapers because they were all so out of date, and they wanted new newspapers.

So the little newsboy never sold any, and every day he accumulated more and more old newspapers.

What the little newsboy did was put up a paper recycling plant, and he became a millionaire, bought out all the newspaper businesses and the news agencies, prohibited publishing current news, and thus obliged people to read only news of the past.

In the papers on sale today, for example, you'd read that the Zapatistas are about to arrive in Mexico City and that they'll meet with the Villistas there.

You can't quite make out the date, but it seems to either 1914 or 1997.

 

 

Buckle Up!

Mexico now has
a seat-belt law.

Alcoholics Anonymous Cancun

All meetings are in english and located in Cancun Downtown, Avenida Nader, Plaza Centro 3rd. floor.

The easiest way to get there is to take a taxi.
Just tell the driver:

" Plaza Centro en Avenida Nader por favor"

Depending on where you stay in the Cancun Hotel zone, it should cost between US $5.00 and US $10.00 per taxi, not per person.

The other way would be to take a bus.
Take any bus which goes to Downtown, stay close to the driver and tell him you want to get off at the Civic market in Avenida Tulum. No matter where you stay in the Hotel zone, the fare is always 5 pesos per person.

Once you get off the bus you will be in the center of town and very close to the meeting. You can ask any of the vendors:

"Donde esta la Plaza Centro"

Most of these vendors speak english and can point you in the right direction.

Travel Green
Learn How!

Cancun is a world-class tourist resort destination and a thriving community of 450,000 full-time residents who lead normal, often very traditional lives.

The greatest asset Cancun has is its natural marine playground which sparkles with a warm sun more than 200 days of the year.

Cancun beaches are 14 miles of white-talc sand.

Don't forget that sunlight in the Yucatan is more direct than most are accustomed to. Limit you initial exposure then increase exposure as your vacation progresses.

Cancun resorts have long been a honeymoon destination but have now become a very hot place for weddings.

In Cancun partying takes precedence over just about everything.

There are more than 350 restaurants.

Cancun hotels are excellent, ranging from four and five star to Grand Tourism.
