and a mini story about alex being sick
alex was finally feeling better today, so we got up and headed into Ixtapa (which is about a 15 minute bus ride from Zihuatanejo) for the day to SWIM WITH THE DOLPHINS!!! which i´ve wanted to do since we saw the sign for, but alex wasn´t sure about. he finally decided that he wanted to so today we went and it was INCREDIBLE!!! we got to touch them and they pulled us along with their fins and before we got out of the water they pushed us along by the bottom of our feet and lifted us right up out of the water. they´re incredibly beautiful, powerful creatures. we had such a great time.
also, alex discovered yesterday that there´s a place offering skydiving! so guess what we´re doing tomorrow!!!
yes...i´m nervous...but i´m going to do it anyway. it´ll be great...i hope. ha.
don´t have a lot of time to write, but finally uploaded some pictures, so here you go!!!

HAPPY VALENTINE´S DAY!!!
alex went bodysurfing near our hotel the other day, and this fish kept me company while i sat on a towel on the beach and played pokemon. (i´m a little body surfed out. ) it really was less than 5 feet away.
one day this massive cruise ship showed up in the Zihua bay. this picture doesn´t do it justice. it was HUGE.
HI!!!! it´s me in our hotel room mirror. awesome.
a huge bug that we saw walking to the beach in Ixtapa. it was so big, and so gross.
that´s alex. i thought this was a great photo.
i got this one after playing with the camera settings a little. ha.
this was our old room at the Hotel Susy. this morning they asked us to change rooms because someone wanted air conditioning and we weren´t using ours because it´s $20 extra.
this is our new room. it´s a little smaller, but farther from the street, so it´s cooler, and there´s less noise. i didn´t mind the trade off. ha.
alex looking scary on Playa del Palmar in Ixtapa.
alex made me take this picture because he said, "how often do you see corn on a stick lying around in vancouver?! never!!!" hahaha.
wish us luck for tomorrow!!!!!!
