Before I go back to studying, I want to talk about things I love and hate about Cancun. There are a lot of things in Cancun I simply adore:
- The fact that it is a great mix of a North American City and a Mexican One. What I mean by that is that it has many aspects of NOB culture since it is such a touristic place, but it also has that small town feel.. local businesses still rule there, you can walk down our street and find anything your heart desires.
- The weather and the fact that there is no snow. Yes, I hate snow, cold and anything that has to do with winter, lol! For as long as I can remember, I have been a summer type of girl. It's getting cold now and I am so sad. I remember when I first met my BF we had this big debate about what was better, to be too hot, or too cold. I told him I would take too hot anyday, and he told he would pick the cold. Now that he's here, he agrees being too hot is being better than being too cold, I win :) hehe
- I have a love/hate relationship with the relaxed culture of Cancun. Toronto and Canadian Culture in general is a go,go,go type of city. People are always in a rush, always stressed, always in debt.. I love it here because its efficient, if I need something done, its a very easy step-by-step process. That is not always the case in Cancun (one time we waited a week for a piece of paper we needed to apply for my bf's multiple-entry visa to Canada and I was so frustrated..well at least my bf had a good laugh) But I love that about Cancun too. I love that there the concept of time if fluid, that you don't have to worry about being 15 mins early like you do here, that people aren't in a rush, and everything is slow. I have really bad anxiety, and I have really learned how to control it thanks to Cancun and Mexico's concept of time
I'll post more soon after I am done studying!
