Mexico - Day 1 - XHXL

This year we decided to travel to Mexico for our vacation.  Although none of the Mexican radio stickers I have are from anywhere near where we were staying, I suppose it's an appropriate time to show what few south-of-the-border decals are in the collection.
We stayed at the very large, very beautiful Iberostar Paraiso Maya resort just south of Cancun.  It was so big that it took us a couple of days to figure out and remember how to get around.  Usually we ended up flagging down one of the many golf carts whizzing around the resort and let them take us where we wanted to go.  A long travel day that included losing and then finding my iPhone at the airport, a very delayed 3 1/2 hour flight out of Cincinnati, customs processing and finding our luggage and shuttle to the resort.  We finally got into our room at around 11 PM local time.  So the next day we decided to just lounge at the gigantic pool.  The water was warm--too warm actually, but it's hard to complain when there's a swim-up bar and endless drinks.

I only saw two radio-related things on this trip: a sponsorship logo from Pirata FM on a highway billboard and, oddly, a bumper sticker from Kenosha, Wisconsin's "95 WIIL Rock" which can barely be seen at the top of yellow pole directly above my soon-to-be-sunburned head in the photo.

"91X La Experiencia" is XHXL licensed to Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico.  They are now branded as "Rock FM 91.7"
